After defeating Hong Kong 11-0 in the Asia-Pacific Regional Tournament, the Seoul Little League club will be participating in the upcoming 68th Little League Baseball® World Series (Aug. 14-24) at Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The last time a South Korean team made it to the Little League World Series was in 1985 (back-to-back years in 1984 and 1985).
The team spent a busy week after winning the title attending ceremonies and receptions. The Korea Baseball Association (KBA) as well as the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) each hosted their own events for them.
Joined by the 12-and-under Little League team (blue jerseys) is the 13-and-under team (white jerseys), who will take part in the Intermediate 50/70 Baseball World Series (Jul. 29-Aug. 4) at Livermore, California. The 13-and-under team defeated a Japanese club 4-2 in the Asia-Pacific Regionals to earn a spot in California.
