    Phase Two consists of four games: Game

Game.
Phase One
    In Phase One, the two brackets follow
the normal movement of teams in a double-
elimination tournament, which means any
two losses eliminate a team from contention.
For the four teams that lose their first two
games, two “crossover” consolation games
are scheduled where U.S. teams will play In-
ternational teams. Both of these games are
televised, giving all teams in the Little League
Baseball World Series at least three televised
games.
    In a standard double-elimination tour-
nament, the team coming out of the losers’
bracket, which would have one loss, would
have to twice defeat the winners’ bracket fi-
nalist in order to advance. However, under
the modified double-elimination format,
Phase One ends with the final game of the
losers’ bracket.
    That means there is no “if-necessary”
game in either bracket. Instead, the winners’
bracket finalist and the losers’ bracket finalist
are the two teams in each bracket (for a total
of four teams) that move on to Phase Two.
Phase Two
   This phase (Game No. 27 through the
World Championship Game) features a simple
four-team, single-elimination format. Games

  Team hosts are dedicated volunteers who play a major role in every player’s Little
League Baseball World Series experience. Each team is assigned two team hosts who
take on various responsibilities, ranging from the uniform fitting, to getting teams to
practice sites, to helping coordinate the media activities. These volunteers spend
every day of the World Series with their assigned team from breakfast until well into
the night. The number following each host denotes the number of years they have
served as a host at the Little League Baseball World Series.
