Breaking the U.S.’ five-year winning streak, Japan won the championship today in the Little League World Series. After weeks of battling against the national teams of other countries, Japan finished the tournament undefeated.
For those of you who aren’t big baseball fans, the Little League World Series is a baseball championship for kids aged eleven to thirteen. Originally including only U.S. teams, the championship is now a worldwide event and is televised on ESPN.
I’m not that into baseball, but I’ve actually really enjoyed watching the Little League World Series — the kids are so cute! Good job, team Japan!!
