The Southern California Divisional Tournament

There are more Little League Baseball charters in California than in any other state. When Little League officials first organized California leagues into districts in 1958, they created 33 districts that were numbered sequentially from far Northern California to San Diego. As Little League's popularity has grown, and as California's population has expanded and migrated, the number of districts in the state has doubled. Today, there are 70 districts in California, including 39 in Southern California. No other state has as many districts as Southern California.

Southern California's districts are grouped into ten sections, and the winners of these sections compete in a double elimination tournament that determines the Southland's champion.

In previous years, Southern California's districts were organized into four sections, and later into eight sections. The manner in which districts are aligned into sections has evolved frequently over time as the number of districts in the division increased.

California was first split into Northern and Southern divisions in 1958. In all but three years since that time, both the Northern and Southern California champions have advanced to region tournament competition.

The Southern California champions advance to the West Region tournament, which is held in San Bernardino, California, each August. The West Region tournament champion then advances to the Little League World Series.

California has sent more teams to the Little League World Series than any other state, with 52 leagues winning California state or divisional championships and eventually participating in the series.

Eight California leagues have won the Little League World Series, including most recently El Segundo Little League, which defeated Curacao's Pabou Little League, 6-5, in the 2023 Little League World Series championship game. El Cajon Northern Little League (1961), Granada Hills National Little League (1963), Long Beach Little League (1992 and 1993), Park View Little League from Chula Vista (2009), and Ocean View Little League from Huntington Beach (2011) also won the Little League World Series championship.
