The Little League World Series is an annual baseball tournament for children aged 11 to 13 years old.
First held in 1947, the event takes place every August in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Originally called the National Little League Tournament, the competition was renamed for the World Series of Major League Baseball. Initially, only teams from the U.S. competed in the Series but it has since become a worldwide tournament. In 1976, the event was split into two brackets: United States and International. Prior to 2001, the tournament was comprised of eight teams – four from the U.S. and four international [Canada, Latin America, Europe, Far East]. Starting in 2001, the number of teams doubled. The U.S. side is made up of eight regions, while the International bracket now includes champions from Japan, Latin America, Mexico, Europe/Africa, Caribbean, Canada, Australia and Asia Pacific/Middle East.
