Little League Baseball adding 4 teams to annual World Series

The Loudoun South Little League team gave its fans plenty to cheer about when it made it to this year’s Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Soon, more towns around the world will have the chance to cheer on their kids.

Little League Baseball said it plans to provide the opportunity to more boys and girls starting in 2021.

The league’s international board of directors has announced that four more teams will take part in the world series two years from now. There will be two additional United States teams and two international teams that will complete in the annual tournament.

Improvements are also planned for the Williamsport facilities. More dormitories will be added and the health care and laundry facilities are going to be reworked.
