The number of districts in Indiana grew from eight to fourteen in the years following the inaugural state tournament. 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, then to a pool format, and most recently to a modified double-elimination format. In 2019, Indiana officials consolidated the state's district structure from 14 to ten districts, and all ten district champions advance to the state tournament under the current format used for the Little League Baseball division.
The Indiana state champions advance to the Great Lakes region tournament in Whitestown, Indiana, where they compete with four other state champions for a berth in the Little League World Series. Sixteen Indiana teams have won region titles or participated in the Little League World Series, including the 2014 New Albany Little League all-star team and the state's most recent qualifier, Hagerstown Little League in 2022. 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.
