Arizona State Champions in the 1970s
Major Baseball Division


When the Western Region expanded to a 14-state tournament in 1972, Arizona consolidated its two sectional tournaments into a single state tournament. Cactus Little League from Tucson promptly won a pair of state titles, and, in 1973, also reached the Little League World Series championship game.

Other winners during the 1970s were spread throughout the state, including a pair of Phoenix leagues (Washington in 1972 and Thunderbird in 1977), a pair of teams from far Southern Arizona (Douglas American in 1975 and Nogales in 1978), and Superior, which won that league's first state title in 1976.
