The District Administrator of a given district is responsible for various aspects of the operations of district tournament games that are part of the International Tournament. He or she may appoint a Tournament Director if the games of a tournament are played at various sites. If no Tournament Director is appointed by the District Administrator, then the DA is the Tournament Director.
International Tournament games are those games that begin on or about July 1 at the District level and conclude with the State Tournaments (8-10 Division & 9-11-year-old Division) and World Series in the nine other divisions of play.
The District Administrator is solely responsible for deciding the site(s) for games within district tournament play. When reviewing possible sites, the DA should consider:
The District Administrator is solely responsible for deciding the officials for games within district tournament play. When reviewing these people, the DA should consider:
Possible committees for each District Administrator to appoint should include: finance, housing, publicity, transportation, program, parking & police, medical, ceremonies, umpires and scorekeepers.
The procedures for handling any protest of a Tournament Rule or Regulation in the International Tournament are in the appropriate Rulebook. It is the right of each manager to suspend play in the International Tournament until his/her protest is heard at the Regional level and, if requested, International Headquarters level. (This does not apply during regular season play, or in Special Games.) However, in the case of a protest involving a playing rule, if the manager relinquishes this right and continues play without first referring the problem to the highest level possible (the Tournament Committee in Williamsport), then the protest is no longer valid.
If a team fails to arrive for a scheduled International Tournament game, the District Administrator or Tournament Director should receive documentation as to the cause. If the team never received information on scheduling, or received the wrong information, or if some members of the team became ill or injured, and the team cannot field at least nine players that day because of the illness or injury the game may be re-scheduled.
However, if the team fails to arrive at the game because of indifference, or because some players are participating in other baseball/softball programs, or because some players are out of town, etc., the District Administrator or Tournament Director may request that the game be forfeited. The reason for a team failing to arrive at a game should be determined before the regional office is contacted. Any forfeit for any reason whatsoever may ONLY be granted by the Tournament Committee in Williamsport. Umpires, the District Administrator, Tournament Director and Regional Director are NOT authorized to grant forfeits.
Televising of International Tournament games without express written permission from Little League Baseball International is prohibited. If a network, television station, cable company, etc., wishes to televise a game, the procedure is detailed here.
Radio broadcasts of International Tournament games is permitted, provided the sponsorship (advertising) for such broadcasts conforms to Little League policies regarding advertising. (See the Operating Manual.) The District Administrator may execute a contract for radio broadcasting of International Tournament games in which he/she is Tournament Director.
