(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 Michigan state tournament -- click for details.

Michigan's first Little League charters were formed in the 1950s, and in the state's early years of competition, Michigan leagues competed alongside other neighboring states in earlier rounds of international tournament competition.
In 1957, the international tournament was revamped, and the first Michigan state tournament was held. Four district champions advanced to a single-elimination state tournament, with the winner advancing to face teams from neighboring states in the North Region tournament. During this era, leagues in Michigan's Upper Peninsula competed in the Wisconsin tournament structure.
Over the years, the number of leagues and districts in Michigan has expanded, and today, there are sixteen districts in Michigan. All district champions advance to the state tournament, and the Michigan state champion advances to the Great Lakes Region tournament in Whitestown, Indiana, where they compete for the right to advance to the Little League World Series.
Twelve Michigan leagues have advanced to the Little League World Series, including most recently Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores Little League in 2017 and 2018. Hamtramck National Little League, which reached the Little League World Series three times in the 1950s, won the 1959 Little League World Series with a roster led by Art Deras, one of the more dominant and iconic players in the early years of the international tournament.
