Bainbridge to host Little League 12-year-olds district baseball tourney; volunteers sought

Bainbridge Island Little League, which serves more than 400 boys and girls ages 5-18 with a variety of baseball and softball programs, is will host the 2021 District 2 tournament for 12-year-old all-star baseball players.

The week-long tournament will take place at Bainbridge’s Rotary Field beginning June 26.

Bainbridge Little League is seeking volunteers to help staff the tournament. To volunteer or for more information, contact league president Dave Bryson at dave.bryson@bilittleleague.org.

Washington State’s Little League District 2 includes teams from Clalla, Jefferson, Kitsap, Mason and Pierce counties, and serves more than 5,000 children each year. The district winner advances to the Washington State tournament, with an opportunity to advance to the Little League World Series.

The 2021 District 2 tournament is noteworthy, organizers say, in that for the first time in its 75-year history, the Little League World Series was cancelled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic; similarly, no district, state or regional tournaments took place.

“We are thrilled and honored to be hosting the hundreds of talented all-stars of District 2 here on Bainbridge,” 2021 tournament chair Holly Rohrbacher said. “We believe this year’s tournament represents a return to normalcy and therefore especially important.”

Multiple games will take place each evening starting on Saturday June 26 and everyone is welcome; admission is free. Food, drinks and snacks will be available the entire week.
