The 1960s was the most dominant era for Texas Little League programs -- six Texas state champions also claimed Southern Region crowns and advanced to the World Series. The last of these World Series qualifiers -- Houston's Westbury American squad in 1966 -- became the second Texas league ever to win the World Series with an 8-2 victory over West New York (NJ) American in the championship game.
Other World Series qualifiers in the 1960s were Fort Worth Northeast Optimist (1960), El Campo (1961), Del Rio Val Verde County (1962), North Houston National (1963), and Waco Northern (1965).
