SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, PA - Little League International announced the promotion of Aaron Weber, former League Development Assistant, to East Region Director Tuesday morning.
The transition will be official on Feb. 21, and will go into effect that day. Weber will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of 2,000 local little leagues across the 11 East Region states, and will also provide support and guidance to volunteers of the leagues at district and local levels.
The East Region is headquartered in Bristol, and is where eastern teams play its tournament to find a representative for the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas. Last summer Upper Providence Little League (Pennsylvania) and North Manchester-Hooksett Little League (New Hampshire) were representatives in Williamsport out of both regions.
“It is my pleasure to announce Aaron as the new East Region Director, and I am looking forward to working alongside him to provide the best support to all the volunteers and players throughout the East Region,” said Corey M. Wright, Little League East and Central Region Operations Managing Director. “During his last five years working at Little League International, Aaron has continued to find new ways to support our volunteers, broaden the overall interest and awareness of the Little League program, and help provide the best possible Little League experience to our volunteers, families, and most importantly, players.”
A native of the Williamsport area, Weber served as the League Development Assistant at the Little League International Headquarters since September 2017. A Penn State grad in 2017, he worked to develop new leagues across the country to affiliate with the Little League program, and has worked with District Administrators and their staff to enhance the experience. He has also worked to increase global awareness of the organization
“It is an honor to be named the East Region Director for Little League International and to have the opportunity to continue to serve and support all of our local leagues and volunteers,” said Weber. “The Little League program has been an important piece of my life since my childhood, and I am looking forward to working with our staff, volunteers, and everyone throughout the East Region to provide that memorable experience to more and more children each year. I am thankful to everyone who has supported and mentored me throughout my time at Little League and am excited for this great new opportunity as East Region Director.”
