The Western Region Tournament

In 1950, the Junior Chamber of Commerce in San Bernardino, California brought together four local businesses willing to pay a $200 sponsorship fee, and for the first time, Little League Baseball was played West of the Rocky Mountains. The San Bernardino JCC league was one of four leagues formed in California that year, and drew attention as one of the early pioneers in Little League's rapid expansion into the Western United States.

Twenty-one years later, the costs were significantly higher -- $950,000 -- as San Bernardino again became a focal point for Little League when ground was broken on a new Western Region Headquarters facility on the city's northwest side. Since that groundbreaking in 1971, Little League's Western Region tournament has returned to San Bernardino each August.

The Western Region tournament took on a new look beginning in 2001. Little League Baseball expanded the Little League World Series to a sixteen team field, and doubled the number of U.S. entrants at the World Series from four to eight. Little League officials also created a new Southwestern Region, and assigned two former Western Region states to the new region.

As a result, state champions in the Western Region are now divided into two six-team region tournaments. Both the Western and Northwest Region tournaments are now held in San Bernardino, and tournament champions advance to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Colorado and New Mexico now compete in the Southwestern Region, and other Western Region states have been assigned to the new regions as follows:

Northwest Region West Region
Alaska
Idaho
Montana
Oregon
Washington
Wyoming
Arizona
Hawaii
Nevada
Northern California
Southern California
Utah

Upwards of 14,500 fans have attended individual Western Region games at Al Houghton Stadium, and the 1993 Western Region championship game drew what was at the time the largest crowd for a team sporting event in San Bernardino County history.
