(June 2021) -- A year after cancelling all tournament play due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Little League Baseball has announced plans for the 2021 international tournament. Following consultation with an advisory committee comprised of outside experts, Little League Baseball has decided to hold the 2021 Little League World Series and all of its qualifying tournaments for the Little League Baseball and Softball divisions (age 10-12 years). Other age divisions will end play at the state tournament level. For 2021 only, the Little League World Series will involve only U.S.-based leagues, with the top two finishers in each region advancing to the Little League World Series.
Little League Baseball has provided guidelines around attendance at the series and COVID protocols for tournament officials and volunteers -- details can be found on the official Little League Baseball website. Beyond this, local tournament officials will follow protocols established by local health authorities based on conditions in their specific area.
With this decision in place and U.S. tournament competition set to begin in the coming weeks, we have begun our coverage of the 2021 Florida state tournament -- click for details. Florida's tournament will look a little different this year as state officials implemented a state realignment plan that reduced the number of districts in Florida from 27 to 23. As part of the realignment, a large number of leagues were reassigned to new districts, and Florida officials made slight modifications to the state's sectional grouping following the elimination of four districts.

Little League Baseball established eight districts in Florida in 1958, with the district champions competing in a single-elimination tournament that determined the state champion. That winner then competed in a divisional tournament against champions from neighboring states for the right to advance to region tournament competition.
Little League's presence in Florida has grown steadily since that first state tournament. Instead of eight districts, Florida is now home to eight sections, and a total of 27 districts. The state tournament uses a format in which North Florida and South Florida sectional champions are placed in separate brackets for pool competition, with the top teams in each bracket advancing to elimination round games. The eventual Florida state champions then advances to the Southeastern Region tournament.
A number of high-profile athletes have played in the Florida state tournament over time. Boog Powell, John Tagliarino, Dwight Gooden, Derek Bell, Gary Sheffield, Maurice Crum, Jason Varitek, and Lastings Milledge all played for teams that won the Florida state championship.
