The World Junior League Championship is upon us, with 2022 marking the 75th anniversary of the tournament.

And there’s even more fun, as this is the first year of the tournament expansion – the Little League Baseball World Series (LLBWS) has increased to 20 teams and the Little League Softball World Series (LLSWS) has increased to 12.

ESPN’s coverage of Little League baseball began Thursday with regional leagues, while coverage of the Little League regional softball began on July 23.

The LLBWS Championships begins in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, on August 17 and ends with the US and International Finals on August 27 and the LLBWS Final on August 28. The LLSWS Championship runs from Tuesday until the final on August 15. .

This year’s celebrations will also see the Boston Red Sox face the Baltimore Orioles in the MLB Little League Classic on August 21 at historic Bowman Field in Williamsport.

We’ve got everything you need to know, from the schedule to how to watch all the matches to results and highlights, as we go.
