Twenty-one years later, the costs were significantly higher -- $950,000 -- as San Bernardino again became a focal point for Little League when ground was broken on a new Western Region Headquarters facility on the city's northwest side. Since that groundbreaking in 1971, Little League's has returned to San Bernardino for region tournament competition each August.
The Western Region tournament took on a new look beginning in 2001. Little League Baseball expanded the Little League World Series to a sixteen team field, and doubled the number of U.S. entrants at the World Series from four to eight. Little League officials also created a new Southwestern Region, and assigned two former Western Region states, Colorado and New Mexico, to the new region.
As a result, state champions in the Western Region were divided into two six-team region tournaments as follows:
|Northwest Region||West Region|
Today, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming compete in the Mountain Region tournament, which was created in 2022.
The Mountain Region, Northwest Region, and West Region tournaments are all held in San Bernardino, and tournament champions advance to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Upwards of 14,500 fans attended individual Western Region games at Al Houghton Stadium, and the 1993 Western Region championship game drew what was at the time the largest crowd for a team sporting event in San Bernardino County history.
