Beginning in 1957, however, Little League Baseball established four regions within the U.S., and the Pennsylvania state champion began competing in a region tournament with other state champions for the right to advance to the Little League World Series.
Today, Pennsylvania leagues are organized into 31 districts, and these districts are grouped into eight sections. The eight section winners advance to a state tournament that determines the state's representative in region tournament competition.
The Pennsylvania state champion advances to the Mid-Atlantic region tournament in Bristol, Connecticut, with the Mid-Atlantic winner advancing to the Little League World Series.
Pennsylvania has sent more teams to the Little League World Series than any state other than California. Including the 22 leagues that qualified for the World Series from 1947-1956, when Pennsylvania was guaranteed to have a representative at the series, 34 Pennsylvania leagues have won region titles or participated in the Little League World Series, including the 2001 State College American Little League all-star team. Hollidaysburg Area Summer Baseball Little League is the state's most recent Little League World Series qualifier, having advanced to the series in 2022.
Four Pennsylvania leagues have won the Little League World Series: Maynard Little League from Williamsport (1947), Lock Haven Little League (1948), Morrisville Little League (1955), and Levittown American Little League (1960).
