The 2020 MBA Region 1C Tournament was held August 1, 2, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16 at Brennan Field in Hinckley. The field included all eleven teams from the Eastern Minny League, after the league opted to forego league playoffs due to the coronavirus-shortened season. The top two teams from Region 1C advance to the 2020 MBA Class C State Tournament
Each team advancing to state chose draftee pitchers from other non-advancing teams in the region to be part of their state tournament team.
Isanti selected: Jimmy Skroch (North Branch), Max Spitzer (St. Francis) and Cole Linson (St. Francis)
Mora selected: Chase Oslin (Quamba), Logan Sjoberg (Quamba) and Rick Wells (Rum River)
