The Eastern Region Tournament

When recent Eastern Region Tournament championship games have been televised on ESPN2, the Bristol, Connecticut-based network's broadcast team did not have to venture far to find the tournament site. Little League Baseball opened what is now the A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Leadership Center in ESPN's hometown in 1987. For the next fourteen years, state champions from Eastern Region states gathered in Bristol to determine which league would represent the East at the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Since 2001, two leagues have advanced from Bristol to the World Series. Little League Baseball expanded the World Series to a sixteen team field, and doubled number of U.S. entrants at the World Series from four to eight. As a result, Eastern Region state champions have been assigned to New England and Mid-Atlantic regions, and the winners from both competitions advances to the Little League World Series. Both region tournaments are held in Bristol, with the region's state champions divided into the new tournament fields as follows:

New England Region Mid-Atlantic Region
Connecticut
Maine
Massachusetts
New Hampshire
Rhode Island
Vermont
Delaware
District of Columbia
Maryland
New Jersey
New York
Pennsylvania

The Eastern Region Tournament, which was first held in 1957, was originally a four-team, single-elimination event. Initially, the tournament was held in a variety of Eastern cities, with Staten Island, New York serving as the tournament host six times. The tournament eventually expanded to a twelve-team format, and after moving to the Town of Newburgh LL Complex in Newburgh, New York in 1977, eventually settled in Bristol.
