Little League World Series

You know I'm a follower. Today was the International and United States Championship games.

Chinese-Taipei vs Japan. Game went to extra innings with Japan winning 3-2, the winning run scored in the bottom of the 7th (a normal LL game is 6 innings). Japan is the International Little League Champions.

Texas vs Hawaii. Hawaii slammed Texas, winning 10-0. The 10 run rule applied. The rule states, if the home team (Hawaii in this case) scores 10 more runs than the visiting team by the bottom of the 4th inning, the home team wins. In this case, Hawaii scored the final run in the bottom of the 5th for the win. Hawaii is the United States Little League Champions.

Little League World Series, for the championship, is tomorrow (Sunday) at Noon Pacific
(3:00 pm EST) time on ABC.

Go Hawaii............
