Originally, the Scottsdale area little leagues were in Arizona's District 7 and won 12 district championships between 1961 and 1987 in the Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division). In 1987, District 6 was spun-off from District 7. McCormick Ranch Little League has won 8 District 6 championships in the Major Division, second only to North Scottsdale Little League's 11 championships since 1987. McCormick Ranch won the right to represent the state of Arizona at Little League's Western Regional after winning the Major Division's state championship in 1998. North Scottsdale is the only other Scottsdale area league to have won a state title in Majors (having done so in 1994, 1999, and 2010).
