Michigan's first Little League charters were formed in the 1950s, and in the state's early years of competition, Michigan leagues competed alongside other neighboring states in earlier rounds of international tournament competition.
In 1957, the international tournament was revamped, and the first Michigan state tournament was held. Four district champions advanced to a single-elimination state tournament, with the winner advancing to face teams from neighboring states in the North Region tournament. During this era, leagues in Michigan's Upper Peninsula competed in the Wisconsin tournament structure.
Over the years, the number of leagues and districts in Michigan has expanded, and today, there are sixteen districts in Michigan. All district champions advance to the state tournament, and the Michigan state champion advances to the Great Lakes Region tournament in Whitestown, Indiana, where they compete for the right to advance to the Little League World Series.
Thirteen Michigan leagues have advanced to the Little League World Series, including most recently Taylor North Little League, which won the 2021 Little League World Series. Hamtramck National Little League was Michigan's other champion, winning the 1959 Little League World Series with a roster led by Art Deras, one of the more dominant and iconic players in the early years of the international tournament.
