How to Attend the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA
The good news is that admission to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penssylvania, is free. The bad news is that seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. But, with a little preparation; a week-long trip to the series and the Howard J. Lamade stadium in August can become a lifelong memory to the young and old alike.
Plan ahead for available flights and/or driving directions to the Little League International complex. Accommodations book up fast and will also need to be made well in advance. The
Be early to get a seat. Because general stadium seating is limited and free, it is also first-come, first-served. Stadium seating fills quickly, but all the games can also be watched from the terraced hillside, which can make a pleasant day-long event for families.
Prepare accordingly for your week. Weather in August in Pennsylvania can range from cool evenings to very hot days. Pack appropriate clothing for all types of weather. Umbrellas, outerwear, sunglasses, and blankets or chairs for the terraced hillside seating are recommended.
Follow the rules. The Little League World Series complex has rules to abide by if you want to stay and enjoy the games. Alcohol, tobacco, glass items, pets and several other items are not allowed on the stadium grounds. Be wise to the rules before you get there -- random bag checks are routine.
