October 8, 2018by Steve Bagnell0

Little League® Ontario District 1 and Ancaster Little League are pleased to announce that they will be hosting the 2019 Canadian Little League® Championship in Ancaster, Ontario. The tournament will be played in August 2019 and will include some of the best 11 and 12 year old teams, representing regions right across Canada as well as the host team from Ancaster Little League. The current regions represented are British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada. The teams will compete for the right to represent Canada on the world stage at the annual Little League® World Series played in Williamsport Pennsylvania.

The tournament is set to hold 3 games each day over the 10-day tournament, all located at Ancaster’s picturesque Ancaster Little League Diamond. For the third straight year, the CBC will stream all round robin games live on their website and all playoff games will be televised coast to coast. The tournament is expected to attract thousands of spectators, dignitaries and celebrities from the local community and from across Canada. Preparations are already underway in order to meet the field and tournament requirements of Little League® Baseball Canada in hosting this national tournament.

Ancaster Little League will continue to work closely with the City of Hamilton’s Health and Safety Communities Department and community partners as we move towards finalizing our plans to host this tournament. We will also be inviting support from the business community and potential media partners through sponsorship opportunities.
