Official website Little League Baseball Western Region

The West Region is one of eight United States regions that currently send teams to the Little League World Series, the largest youth baseball competition in the world. The region's participation in the LLWS dates back to 1957, when it was known as the West Region. However, when the LLWS was expanded in 2001 from eight teams (four U.S. teams and four "International" teams from the rest of the world) to 16 teams (eight U.S. and eight International), the Western Region was split into the Northwest and West Regions.

The West Region is made up of six districts in five states.

Wyoming was a member of the region from 2002–2006. During that time, Hawaii was in the Northwest Region. New Mexico was a part of the region in 2001, but was put in the Southwest Region the following year.

Notes[edit]

  • [a] Before the start of the regional tournament, Utah's state champions were disqualified for participating in a non-sanctioned tournament prior to the start of the state tournament. The state's runner-up, who had lost the championship game by forfeit, were awarded the title. However, they would also be disqualified later for the same reason. Little League officials, after failing to find another replacement team on such short notice, decided the regional tournament would have to take place without a team from Utah.[1]
