(June 2021) -- A year after cancelling all tournament play due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Little League Baseball has announced plans for the 2021 international tournament. Following consultation with an advisory committee comprised of outside experts, Little League Baseball has decided to hold the 2021 Little League World Series and all of its qualifying tournaments for the Little League Baseball and Softball divisions (age 10-12 years). Other age divisions will end play at the state tournament level. For 2021 only, the Little League World Series will involve only U.S.-based leagues, with the top two finishers in each region advancing to the Little League World Series.
Little League Baseball has provided guidelines around attendance at the series and COVID protocols for tournament officials and volunteers -- details can be found on the official Little League Baseball website. Beyond this, local tournament officials will follow protocols established by local health authorities based on conditions in their specific area.
With this decision in place and U.S. tournament competition set to begin in the coming weeks, we have begun our coverage of the 2021 Wyoming state tournament -- click for details.

Wyoming has had strong active participation in Little League Baseball since the first league was chartered in the tiny Natrona County community of Midwest in 1954. One year later, additional leagues were formed in Douglas, Glenrock, and Riverton.
The first Wyoming leagues entered the international tournament in 1956, when Douglas, Midwest, and Riverton joined Rimrock Little League from Billings, Montana, in a district tournament held in Riverton. Rimrock won that tournament, and advanced to sectional tournament competition in Port Orchard, Washington.
The first Wyoming state tournament was held the following year, when Little League Baseball reorganized its tournament structure with the precursor to the same framework currently used today. Four leagues met in Riverton on August 2 and 3, 1957, with Riverton claiming the first Wyoming state championship following an 8-1 victory over Cody in the championship game. Riverton then advanced to face the Montana state champion in sectional tournament competition in the next leg of a progression that fed into the Western Region tournament.
Today, Wyoming has two districts -- one covering the state's Western half, and one covering the Eastern half -- and two qualifiers from each of these districts meet in a state tournament that determines the Wyoming champion.
The Wyoming champion advances to the Northwest Region tournament in San Bernardino, California, where they compete for the right to advance to the Little League World Series. Beginning with the 2022 international tournament, Wyoming will compete in the newly-created Mountain Region as the Little League World Series expands from sixteen to twenty qualifiers.
With less than 600,000 residents, Wyoming is the most sparsely populated state in the United States, and is often competing against winners of states with populations more than ten times larger. No Wyoming league has ever qualified for the Little League World Series, but Wyoming leagues have advanced to region semifinals on four occasions (Laramie Little League in 1997, 2001, 2003, and 2008), and the state's leagues have racked up wins over teams from nine other states and a Canadian province in international tournament competition.
