Little League Baseball established eight districts in Florida in 1958, with the district champions competing in a single-elimination tournament that determined the state champion. That winner then competed in a divisional tournament against champions from neighboring states for the right to advance to region tournament competition.
Little League's presence in Florida has grown steadily since that first state tournament. Instead of eight districts, Florida is now home to eight sections, and a total of 27 districts. The state tournament uses a format in which North Florida and South Florida sectional champions are placed in separate brackets for pool competition, with the top teams in each bracket advancing to elimination round games. The eventual Florida state champions then advances to the Southeastern Region tournament.
A number of high-profile athletes have played in the Florida state tournament over time. Boog Powell, John Tagliarino, Dwight Gooden, Derek Bell, Gary Sheffield, Maurice Crum, Jason Varitek, and Lastings Milledge all played for teams that won the Florida state championship.
