Board of Directors

The management of the property and business affairs of Little League Baseball®, Incorporated, is vested in the International Board of Directors. The Board has the control of the corporation and the power to appoint such standing committees as it shall determine and to delegate such responsibilities as it shall deem advisable.

Along with more than a dozen at-large members from a variety of occupations and backgrounds, the Little League International Board has nine Field Directors, each representing one of Little League’s nine regions, who are nominated by their peers for election to four-year terms by their region’s District Administrators.

The members of the Little League International Board of Directors are volunteers in this service to Little League® Baseball and Softball. They receive no compensation for their dedicated work on behalf of the program and the children of the world.
