(June 1, 2018) -- Tournament teams are being announced in the U.S. and Canada, and that means it's time for our coverage of the 72st annual Little League Baseball international tournament for the major baseball division.
This is our 23rd season of coverage, and as we have each summer since 1996, we will bring you results from tournament action around the U.S. and Canada, beginning with the earliest games in area and district tournament competition, and culminating with the game that decides the final berth in this year's Little League World Series. As always, we rely heavily on site visitors to help us to keep tabs on the thousands of results as the tournament progresses, so if you can provide results for tournaments that are not listed on this site, please contact the Unpage.
As always, Little League Baseball has tweaked several rules for tournament competition. Two rule changes for 2018 are particularly prominent. First, Little League has changed its league age determination date from April 30 to August 31. This change, which was passed in 2015 with a planned 2018 implementation date, will ultimately lower the average age of participants in the tournament. For 2018 only, children born between April 30 and August 31, 2005 will be grandfathered in as league age 12. This will result in children with birth dates spanning a sixteen month period being league age twelve for the 2018 international tournament, and will ensure that no child skips from league age eleven to league age thirteen due to the change in how league age is determined.
A second important change for 2018 is that all bats used in Little League's major baseball division, including in the international tournament, must adhere to the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat), and must display a logo certifying that the bat meets this standard. Bats meeting this certification must perform with a certain range of standard that was adopted by USA baseball following extensive scientific research involving modeling, field testing, and lab testing of bat performance levels.
Little League Baseball has also modified its mercy rule. Previously, if a team were ahead by ten or more runs after four or five complete innings, the game would end. Beginning with the 2018 international tournament, the mercy rule now also goes into effect after three innings if a team is ahead by 15 runs or more. The threshold for ending a game early reduces to ten runs beginning in the fourth inning.
(April 5, 2018) -- North American leagues are in the early stages of their regular season schedules, and all-star competition will not begin until June. Overseas, however, the international tournament is underway. In Australia, all state tournaments are played in late March or April, and teams are aiming for berths in the Australian Region tournament. Twenty Aussie leagues will meet at the Far North Coast Baseball Association's complex in Lismore, New South Wales in June to determine which Australian league will advance to the Little League World Series.
In Japan, early round games begin in April, and the international tournament schedule will hit full stride during Golden Week in late April and early May. Japanese tournament games are played predominantly on weekends and public holidays, and with four holidays packed into a seven-day span, most districts will play significant portions of their district tournament schedules during this week. Sixteen leagues will advance from Japan's twelve districts to the Japanese Region tournament in late July.
