We (as a league) would like to get this going but have two issues we always run into.

One is the largest league and the one that has the most say in the district runs its own tournaments Spring Summer and Fall bringing in kids on teams from other districts. They apparently feel interleague play would cut into this. (I expect they are right, though they are different.)

The other is when we bring this up, the couple leagues interested, (often meaning close by), don't want to do real LL interleague. They want to bring in basically what will be their all-star teams to play our teams. Which is not interleague. (And we would also be crushed.) I received two such requests this fall season.

Thirteen Leagues, one is BB only and one is SB only.
Nine of 12 play Inter-League Baseball in one or more divisions.
Ten of 12 play Inter-League Softball in one or more divisions.

How many leagues are in your district and how many of them do inter-league in Minors and Majors?

We highly encourage all of the leagues/teams to play Inter-League so they get the opportunity to play other teams at other parks (sort of mini-travel ball).
Most leagues do play some Inter-League (BB and SB).

Softball: 122 games (have not done Seniors yet)
Baseball: 167 games (have not done 50/70 or Seniors yet)

We will also have Weekend Softball Jamborees (Special Games Tournaments) in Minors, Majors and Juniors (maybe Seniors too).
We will also have Mid-Season Baseball Tournaments for Minors and Majors.
Those give every player the opportunity to play in a Tournament.

As the District Inter-League Coordinator I'm going to be very busy this year.

By the way, the new online Inter-League process is a pain !!!
