Easley, SC 29642
On July 23rd, 2014, Easley, South Carolina, welcomes back the boys of summer as the Big League Baseball World Series, a division of Little League Baseball and Softball, returns for its 14th season.

Last year we welcomed 11 teams from around the world to battle it out for the Big League World Series title while making friends and experiencing the South Carolina southern comfort. We danced and sang along at Fan Fest with Casey James, a previous American Idol contestant and opening act for country sensation Taylor Swift. We witnessed Asia-Pacific show respect for the game and their opponents by bowing, teaching spectators an aspect of their culture. We provided fun opportunities for teams such as US Central’s tour of Clemson University’s athletic facilities. Finally, we all watched as the Greenville, SC, team, representing the Southeast region, won the Series by beating Latin America 6-1.

This year is another week-long series you won’t want to miss. Opening day is Tuesday, July 22, and will include a home run derby and another Fan Fest celebrity singing act that will be announced later. Like previous years, the 2014 schedule separates the United States Pool from the International Pool, all leading up to a US vs International Championship game at 6:30 on Wednesday, July 30th.
