As the world turns its eyes to Williamsport to celebrate the historic 75th Anniversary of the Little League Baseball® World Series, a total of 20 teams from around the globe are set to compete with more Little Leaguers® taking the field than ever before on August 17-28.
Meet the 20 teams that will be making lifelong memories in Williamsport this summer:
Asia-Pacific Region: Fu-Lin Little League (Taipei City, Chinese Taipei)
Fu-Lin Little League’s journey to Williamsport got off to a rocky start after dropping its opening round game in the Asia-Pacific Region tournament to South Korea, but the team rebounded quickly by putting together three straight wins, including a tightly contested rematch against South Korea in the championship game. The team from Chinese Taipei will look to add to the LLBWS-record 17 championship banners in the country’s 30th appearance in the tournament.
Australia Region: Brisbane North Region Little League (Brisbane, Australia)
Brisbane North Region Little League went 6-1 in the Australia Region tournament, falling to Hills Little League in pool play before winning the rematch, 4-0, in the championship game. Brisbane North Region Little League will look to surpass Australia’s most successful outing in Williamsport from 2013, where Hills LL was able to notch two wins before being knocked out of the elimination bracket by Mexico. This will be the eighth time Australia is represented in the LLBWS and the first visit for Brisbane North Region Little League.
Canada Region: Little Mountain Little League (Vancouver, Canada)
Little Mountain Little League opened the Canada Region tournament by scoring double-digit runs in six consecutive games, adding two more wins in the semifinal and championship games. The team accumulated 101 runs over its eight wins, including the three most important scores that allowed Little Mountain Little League to sneak past Calgary Rocky Mountain Little League by just one run in the semifinals. This marks the 62nd time a Canadian team will play in the LLBWS, and Little Mountain Little League’s second visit to Williamsport after picking up an opening-round victory against Panama in 2010.
