The Hawaii State Tournament

The significant U.S. military presence in Hawaii led to early development of several Little League programs in what was then a U.S. territory. Hickam Air Force Base, Pearl Harbor, Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station, and Barbers Point Naval Air Station are a few of the bases which sponsored leagues in the late 1950s.

In early years, all Hawaiian leagues competed in a single "Pacific District" tournament, and the winner advanced to the Little League World Series. Later, as Little League spread to Hawaiian islands beyond Oahu, the state began organizing its leagues into districts. Initially the state was divided into three districts (two on Oahu and one for other islands), and by the end of the 1960s, Hawaiian leagues were organized into eight districts. Additionally, the path to the Little League World Series changed for Hawaiian leagues. In the early 1960s, leagues began to flourish in Japan, and the Hawaiian champion faced a Japanese league for the right to represent the Pacific in the Little League World Series. By 1962, Hawaiian leagues competed in the Western Region like other West Coast states.

Hawaii currently has five districts, and the champions of these districts meet in a double-elimination tournament that decides the state championship. The Hawaiian champion advances to the West Region tournament in San Bernardino, California, and the West Region winner then advances to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Eleven Hawaiian leagues have participated in the Little League World Series, including Waipio Little League, which won the United States championship in 2010. The state has produced two Little League World Series champions: West Oahu Little League in 2005, and Waipio in 2008. The 1988 Pearl City Little League all-star squad won the United States championship with a roster that included four players who eventually played in the Little League, Junior League, Senior League, and Big League World Series tournaments.
