Little League Cancels 2020 Tournaments

Earlier, Little League International President and CEO Stephen Keener shared a live Facebook announcement that the Regional and World Series Tournaments for all Divisions will be cancelled for the 2020 season. It is disappointing news for sure, but one that could not be avoided due to the current situation and timelines for reopening. Mr. Keener did say that the season can still be played to a limited extent depending on state regulations.

District 42 will be working closely with Western Region and other Districts in Southern California to determine if we can play a District All Star Tournament, a Sectional Tournament and/or a So Cal State Tournament. This will be contingent on the State and County opening up cities. We will update you as soon as we receive additional information and guidance.

We will be having a telecom with league presidents and will be discussing next steps for playing later in the summer, in compliance with local and state health regulations.

We share your disappointment and we thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and stay tuned for more information.
