The Senior League World Series is a baseball tournament for children aged 14 to 16 years old that began in 1961. Since 2002, the tournament has been held annually in Bangor, Maine. It is patterned after the Little League World Series, which was named for the World Series in Major League Baseball.
The Senior League World Series is one of eight tournaments sponsored by Little League International. Each of them brings baseball or softball teams from around the world together in one of four age divisions. The tournament structure for each division's World Series is similar to that used for the Little League Baseball World Series.
Also unlike the Little League World Series — which divides its regional champions into two discrete brackets (U.S. and International) — the Senior League World Series divides its nine regional champions (plus the host team) into two mixed pools that combine U.S. and international regions.
In 2009, Pool A consisted of the host team and the champions from Asia/Pacific, Canada, Southwest, and West. The teams in Pool B were from Central, East, Southwest, Latin America, and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa).
The two best teams from each pool advance to the semi-finals. The semi-final winners play for the championship. All matches are single-elimination games. The losing teams face off in classification games.
