The Wisconsin State Tournament

Little League Baseball came to Wisconsin in 1951, when the state's first charter was granted to a fledgling league in Reedsburg. The Veterans of Foreign War defeated Hankscraft 14-4 in the league's inaugural regular season game on April 27, 1951, and soon other leagues were being formed throughout the state. Wisconsin leagues initially competed against leagues from other states and provinces in the early stages of the international tournament, but in 1957, the area covering Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula was divided into two districts, and the champions of these two districts met to determine the state champion.

Wisconsin grew from two districts to six by 1980, but the state's leagues continued to compete alongside leagues from Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula in the international tournament until 1982. Since that time, the champions of Wisconsin's districts have met to determine the state's champion. Initially, this tournament used a single- or double-elimination format, but in recent years, Wisconsin's state tournament has used a round-robin format, with the top finishers in the round-robin standings then meeting to determine the state champion.

The Wisconsin champion advances to the Midwest Region tournament in Whitestown, Indiana, and the Midwest Region champion advances to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Prior to 2022, Wisconsin competed in the Great Lakes region tournament.

No Wisconsin league has ever participated in the Little League World Series. Two Wisconsin teams have reached a region championship game: Franklin National Little League reached the Central Region championship game in 1990, and Burlington Little League advanced to the Great Lakes Region title game in 2015. The Escanaba JC Little League from Michigan's Upper Peninsula qualified for the Little League World Series in 1957 after playing through the Wisconsin state tournament bracket.
