For the first time in its history, the Little League World Series is being canceled, organizers said Thursday.

“This is a heartbreaking decision for everyone at Little League International, but more so for those millions of Little Leaguers who have dreamed of one day playing in one of our seven World Series events,” said Little League President and CEO Stephen D. Keener. But "it will not be possible to proceed with our tournaments as we’ve hosted them for nearly 75 years.”

The decision was made after consulting with government and health officials around the world. Some 6,500 community-based Little League programs in 84 countries are involved in the global competition.
