The Connecticut State Tournament

Connecticut has frequently been a focal point for Little League Baseball over the past 60 years. Little League Baseball expanded rapidly into Connecticut and other Eastern states during the organization's early years, and the Middletown Little League became one of the first out-of-state leagues to travel to Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series when they came to Williamsport in 1948 to compete in the second annual tournament. Three years later, a league from Stamford became Connecticut's first Little League World Series champion by defeating the North Austin Lions Little League (Texas) 3-0 in the championship game.

Connecticut established ten districts in 1958, and added an eleventh in 1959. Those eleven districts remain intact today. In early years, the district champions played off in a single-elimination tournament held at locations throughout the state. For a brief timespan in the late 1980s and early 1990s, two Connecticut leagues advanced to the region tournament, but since 1993, the state has held two sectional tournaments, with the winner of a playoff between the two sectional champions advancing to regional competition.

The Connecticut state champion advances to the New England Region Tournament, which is held each August in Bristol in the central part of the state. The winner of the region tournament advances to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Twenty Connecticut leagues have advanced to the Little League World Series, including the state's most recent qualifier, Fairfield American Little League in 2017. Four of the state's leagues have won the Little League World Series championship. Stamford and Norwalk National won back-to-back titles in 1951 and 1952, while Windsor Locks (1965) and Trumbull National (1989) defeated international leagues in the championship game. Trumbull's victory over the Kang Tu Little League (Kao Hsiung, Taiwan) remains one of the most famous upsets in Little League World Series history.
