Good luck to our own little Pirates, Charlie Pierson & Xander Gunn, representing the Southern Mariners in the 2017 Little League Championships in Lismore NSW from 7th June to the 12th June. If they win the Australian Championships they will be off to the USA for the Little League World Series. Enjoy the moment boys!!
The jewel in the crown of Australian Little League is almost upon us, and Baseball Australia is proud to announce the rosters and schedule for the 2017 Bendigo Bank Australian Little League Championship.
The Bendigo Bank Australian Little League Championship will take place between 7-12 June in Lismore, NSW and will see 20 of the best Little League charters from around Australia vie for the Australian Championship, and a place at the coveted Little League World Series in August.
Teams from all across the world travel to Williamsport, Pennsylvania to participate in the biggest underage baseball event on the planet, with games from the Little League World Series broadcast on ESPN in Australia, as well as over 300,000 people attending the 10-day tournament, which this year takes place between 17-27 August.
Hills Little League (NSW) is the defending Australian champion, and will look to be the first team to represent the Australia Region at consecutive Little League World Series’. Hills became the most successful Australian team at a Little League World Series in 2016, winning two pool games and finishing inside the top four international teams, something no other Australian team has done before.
Select games on Diamond 1, including the Semi Finals, Bronze and Gold Medal games will be broadcast live on abltv.com. Please stay tuned for broadcast schedule.
All streamed games will be available live and on-demand through Baseball Live, the new Baseball Australia app. Live scoring for all 48 games will also be available through Baseball Live. To download Baseball Live, click here.
