The Montana State Tournament

Montana's first Little League programs were formed in 1952, when leagues were chartered in Billings and Butte. Tournament brackets during that era were drawn based on geographic proximity rather than state boundaries, and for a state as expansive as Montana, this meant that leagues in Billings and Libby, which chartered a program in 1955, would face teams from adjoining states in early tournament games rather than competing in a state tournament.

Soon, Little League Baseball moved to a tournament system organized around state boundaries, and Montana has held a state tournament every year since 1957. Initially the tournament encompassed all leagues in the state, but as more leagues were established in Western Montana, the state was divided into two districts in 1961. Since that time, Montana's two district champions have met to determine the state's champion. Today, the Montana champion advances to the Northwest Region tournament in San Bernardino, California. The Montana representative competes alongside champions from five other Pacific Northwest states for a berth in the Little League World Series.

Billings Big Sky Little League became Montana's first-ever qualifier for the Little League World Series in 2011, when they finished as the United States runner-up. The same league also became the second Montana league ever to reach a region championship game when they finished as the Northwest Region runner-up in 2013.
