December 21, 2012 The Executive Committee of the Little League International Board of Directors has approved relocating the Big League Softball World Series tournament to Sussex County, Del. Currently, the Lower Sussex Little League Complex in Sussex County, Del., is host to the Senior League Softball World Series. Beginning with the 2013 season the Senior League Softball and Big League Softball World Series tournaments will share the facility and be played simultaneously, during the week of Aug. 4-10. “The move to Delaware is a direct result of stellar leadership displayed by Senior League Softball World Series Director Martin Donovan and his tournament staff,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “For the past 10 years, Lower Sussex has shown to be a wonderful host for the Senior League tournament. To move a second World Series to Sussex County made the best sense for our organization and the Big League Softball World Series. We are comfortable and confident that the local tournament committee will transition well into operating concurrent tournaments.” Vanderberg Park in Kalamazoo, Mich., served as host to the Big League Softball World Series (BLSWS) for 19 seasons. The 2012 BLSWS Champion was Philippines District 1 from Manila, which became the first team from outside of the United States to win that championship. “Hosting two World Series at the same time means we are doubling up on everything,” Mr. Donovan said.
