Little League World Series (Central Region)

The Central Region was a region that competed in the Little League World Series between 1957 and 2000 until it was split into the Midwest and Great Lakes regions in 2001. The Central Region only produced one World Champion, in 1959, when Hamtramck, Michigan defeated Auburn, California 12-0 in the Final.

The Central Region was inaugurated in 1957 (named the North Division from 1957–1973)) when the LLWS first gave out Series berths to Regional winners.[1] The Region consisted of teams from the Dakotas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio, and Wisconsin. In 2000, Kentucky replaced Oklahoma in the region.

Little League Baseball expanded the LLWS to sixteen teams for the 2001 Little League World Series. The Central Region was split into the Midwest region – the Dakotas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska – and the Great Lakes region – Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin.
