The long road to the Little League World Series title features just two remaining teams putting it all on the line in a winner-take-all championship game.Japan cruised through its side of the bracket, winning four-straight games to win the international title.
Texas, representing the Southwest region, stumbled a bit with one loss, but the double-elimination format allowed the squad to bounce back and win the United States championship.These teams will now face off to decide the ultimate winner in this age group.
The Southeast team from North Carolina had been the most consistent throughout the U.S. tournament, but it was the Southwest squad that ended up winning the bracket.Lufkin Little League from Texas overcame a 5-0 deficit in the United States championship.
North Carolina had back-to-back no-hitters in this tournament and an earlier 2-1 win over Texas but couldn’t close out the win when it mattered the most.Meanwhile, Texas’ presence in the title game is hardly a fluke. The team outscored opponents 31-13 in its four wins, while it took extra innings for Southeast to win their first matchup.
While the attention of Little Leaguers and their fans has been focused on the Little League World Series and, especially, since Fairfield American has been representing New England in that annual event so well, it is an appropriate time to return to the early days of this event in 1948 when another team from our state was in Williamsport, Pa, along with a 12-year old boy who went on to Major League fame.
