Early Little League Baseball Region Tournaments

Little League Baseball was still in its infancy when the first Little League World Series was held in 1947. Each of the teams that competed in that original tournament arrived via invitation rather than the series of qualifying tournaments that is familiar today, and in 1948, several teams again began their tournament play at the World Series level. It was only in 1949 when every participant in the Little League World Series needed to play qualifying games, and the organization's charters were organized into eight distinct regions that spanned the continental U.S. Even with this broader scope, only twelve states had chartered leagues, and the Westernmost participants in the tournament hailed from Texas.

That changed the following year, when four leagues were established in California, and again the next when many Western states began chartering leagues. By the mid-1950s, Little League truly had a presence throughout the nation, as well as the first seedlings of its eventual global presence.

As a result of this rapid expansion, the boundaries for most of the the eight regions -- which were numbered rather than named after specific geographic areas -- changed on a regular basis through the mid-1950s. Eventually, in 1957, Little League Baseball organized its states into distinct Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western regions, and establishing the structure from which the current regional construct was eventually derived. While some states held a state tournament to determine their region qualifiers during the early 1950s, others were organized so that teams in one portion of the state competed for one region tournament berth, and leagues in other areas competed for a second berth. Thus, for many states, the first true state tournament was held in 1957.

Our coverage of the Region 3 tournament launched on June 16, 2011. Click to contact the webmaster with any comments or questions about this page.

Thanks to the late Al Bryce from Roseville, California, for his collaboration in obtaining region tournament results from the early years of the international tournament.
