2022 Little League World Series: Schedule, results and highlights

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

The Little League World Series is upon us, with 2022 marking the 75th anniversary of the tournament.

And there's more fun to be had, as this is the first year of the tournament's expansion -- with the number of teams in the Little League Baseball World Series (LLBWS) increased to 20 and the Little League Softball World Series (LLSWS) increased to 12.

The LLBWS tournament in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, starts on Wednesday and is capped off with the United States and International finals on Aug. 27 and the LLBWS final on Aug. 28.

The LLSWS champion was crowned on Monday, with Texas bringing the championship back to the Southwest with a 5-4 win over Maryland. The tournament ran from Aug. 9 to Aug. 15.

This year's festivities will also feature the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles facing off in the MLB Little League Classic on Aug. 21 at historic Bowman Field in Williamsport.

We have everything you need to know, from the schedule to how to watch all the games to results and highlights, as we get underway.

Full coverage of the LLWS can be found here.
