Little League International will Saturday cut the ribbon on its new, $5 million Central Region Headquarters in Whitestown. The 15-acre facility, which has been several years in the making, will host its first game between Zionsville Little League and Brownsburg Little League to celebrate the grand opening.
The facility includes the organization’s Central Region Headquarters administration building; a full-size, lighted Little League field with stadium seating, bleachers, and press box; batting cages; concession stands; restrooms; and a gift shop.
Little League International says the facility will serve as the home for this summer’s Little League Softball Central Region Tournament, as well as the Little League Baseball Great Lakes and Midwest Region Tournaments.
“After nearly three years of planning and hard work, we are thrilled to be able to officially open our new facility in Whitestown and welcome members of the community to be a part of this exciting experience,” said Nina Johnson-Pitt, Little League Senior Strategy Executive. “On behalf of all of us at the Little League Central Region and Little League International, we are thankful to everyone who has been a part of this journey and look forward to providing everyone in the Whitestown community and across the Central Region with a piece of the Little League experience each summer.”
Plans for the facility in Whitestown have been in the making since mid-2018. However, the original plans were for the facility to be located in Zionsville, before the Pennsylvania-based organization nixed those plans.
