The number of districts in Indiana has grown from eight to fourteen since 1957. Initially, state officials instituted sectional tournaments that funneled teams into the state tournament. This resulted in a four-team state tournament field. The sectional champions competed in a single-elimination tournament through 1981, and in a double-elimination tournament through the 1997 state tournament.
Since 1998, the format at the Indiana state tournament has changed several times, first evolving from single-elimination to a double-elimination schedule, and most recently switching to a pool format. While sectional tournaments have been used in the past, the state's fourteen district champions all advance to the state tournament under the current format used for the major baseball division.
The Indiana state champions advance to the Great Lakes region tournament in Indianapolis, where they compete with five other state champions for a berth in the Little League World Series. Fifteen Indiana teams have won region titles or participated in the Little League World Series, including the 2014 New Albany Little League all-star team. Two Indiana leagues -- Anderson Little League from Gary in 1971 and Edison Little League from Hammond in 1972 -- have reached the Little League World Series championship game.
