The Midwest Region Tournament

During the early years of tournament competition in Little League Baseball's Central Region, champions from states located west of the Mississippi river faced each other in the region's Division 1 tournament, with the winner earning the right to advance to the region tournament. Later, all Central Region state champions advanced directly to the region tournament.

With the recent expansion of the Little League World Series from eight to sixteen teams, the Division 1 states have come full-circle, and will again face each other. Now, however, there is a greater reward for the winner: a berth in the Little League World Series.

Little League Baseball created the Midwest Region tournament in 2001, when Little League's twelve-team Central Region tournament was split into two region tournaments: the Great Lakes Region tournament and the Midwest Region tournament. Both the Great Lakes and the Midwest Region tournaments are held at Little League's Reuben F. Glick Little League Center in Indianapolis.

In the Midwest tournament, champions from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and North/South Dakota compete for the right to advance to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Only Wisconsin is absent from the old Division 1 tournament field: the Wisconsin champions compete in the Great Lakes Region tournament.

The Midwest Region tournament employs an Olympic-style pool format in which each team plays a series of round-robin games against other tournament qualifiers. The top four finishers at the end of this phase of the tournament advance to single-elimination semifinal round competition. Semifinal winners then face off in the region championship game.
