WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.- This year’s Little League Senior Softball World Series in Roxana has been canceled by Little League International. The governing body announcing that all seven baseball and softball World Series tournaments will not take place in 2020 due to safety and logistic concerns related to the pandemic.
The Senior Softball event was scheduled for August 3 – 9. Billed as the largest youth sports event in Delaware, the World Series features ten teams of girls ages 14 – 16 years old. By virtue of Roxana serving as the host site, a Sussex County team is guaranteed a spot in the international tournament.
“I know this is not what we wanted to hear but as you know there are a lot of moving parts that we can’t control,” Senior Softball World Series Director Martin Donovan said. “The good news is we will be back for the 2021 World Series. Lets get through the coronavirus, listen to the health care providers and be safe.”
Roxana had learned previously that they will continue to serve as host for the next three World Series.
