The Southern California Divisional Tournament

There are more Little League Baseball charters in California than in any other state. When Little League officials first organized California leagues into districts in 1958, they created 33 districts that were numbered sequentially from far Northern California to San Diego. As Little League's popularity has grown, and as California's population has expanded and migrated, the number of districts in the state has doubled. Today, there are 70 districts in California, including 39 in Southern California. No other state has as many districts as Southern California.

California was first split into Northern and Southern divisions in 1958. In all but three years since that time, both the Northern and Southern California champions have advanced to the West Region tournament, and have generally been the tournament powerhouses. California teams have won 40 region championships since 1957, and Southern California has led the way with 26 titles.

Southern California's districts are grouped into ten sections, and the winners of these sections compete for the Southland's divisional championship. The five North section winners compete for one championship series berth, and the five South section winners compete for the other. The North and South champions then meet in a best 2-of-3 championship series. In previous years, Southern California's districts were organized into four sections, and in more recent years, ten sections. The manner in which districts are aligned into sections has evolved frequently over time as the number of districts in the division increased.

The Southern California champions advance to the West Region tournament, which is held in San Bernardino, California, each August. The West Region tournament champion then advances to the Little League World Series.

California has sent more leagues (48) to the Little League World Series than any other state, including Park View Little League from Chula Vista in 2016. Seven California leagues have won the Little League World Series, including most recently Ocean View from Huntington Beach, which defeated Japan's Hamamatsu Minami Little League, 2-1, in the 2011 Little League World Series championship game. El Cajon Northern (1961), Granada Hills National (1963), Long Beach (1992 and 1993), and Park View from Chula Vista in 2009 also won the Little League World Series championship.
