The Florida State Tournament

The first Florida team to compete in Little League Baseball's international tournament set an impressive standard. A league from St. Petersburg traveled to Pennsylvania for the second annual Little League World Series in 1948, and took second place behind a squad from Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. Other Florida leagues soon followed in St. Petersburg's footsteps: over time a total of 22 Florida leagues have qualified for the Little League World Series, including Tampa's Citrus Park Little League in 2008.

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.
