Northern California Champions in the 1970s


A familiar face dominated Northern California in the 1970s, as Campbell claimed three state championships, three Western Region championships, and three runner-up finishes at the Little League World Series. The three titles is the second-most number of Northern California championships won by a single league.

Campbell's heroics didn't overshadow those of three other leagues. Concord National became the first league to win multiple titles when they claimed the 1973 championship (they also won in 1961), and San Ramon Valley won the first of its four titles when their 1978 squad won Northern California, Western Region, and U.S. championships. Red Bluff's 1974 club also finished as the World Series runner-up.
