Little League Baseball in the District of Columbia

When the Washington Nationals relocated from Montreal to the District of Columbia prior to the start of the 2005 major league baseball season, the move was widely hailed as the return of baseball to the U.S. capital. This was true on the major league level, but Little League Baseball had returned to Washington D.C. in 1986, when the Capitol City Little League was formed in the District's Northwest quadrant. Though the District had sent teams to the Maryland state tournament throughout the 1970s and into the early 1980s, all of that era's leagues eventually folded, and Capitol City's charter marked a rebirth for Little League Baseball in the District. Other leagues soon followed, and today the District has a handful of leagues spread throughout the city.

In recent years, Washington D.C.'s leagues have met in a double-elimination tournament to determine the District's champion. In most Little League baseball and softball divisions, this winner then competes as a district champion within the Maryland tournament structure. For the major baseball division, the District's champion advances to the Mid-Atlantic Region tournament in Bristol, Connecticut, where the D.C. champion competes against winners from five neighboring states for the right to advance to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

No District of Columbia league has ever reached the Little League World Series. Capitol City Little League has twice reached the semifinal round in a region tournament, losing in extra innings to eventual region champion Toms River East American Little League (New Jersey) in the 1999 Eastern Region tournament and dropping a one-run decision to eventual Little League World Series qualifier South Caroline Little League (Preston, Maryland) in the 2004 Mid-Atlantic Region tournament.
