The Big League World Series was a baseball tournament for children aged 15 to 18 years old that began in 1968.[1] On August 26, 2016, Little League International announced that it was eliminating the Big League Level of both baseball and softball. It was patterned after the Little League World Series, which was named for the World Series in Major League Baseball. Most recently, the tournament was held in Easley, South Carolina.

The Big League World Series was held at four different sites.

Tournament format[edit]

Pool A (U.S.) consisted of six regions (including the Host team)
