The Little League team Chinese Taipei won the Little League World Series held over the past ten days in Williamsport, PA in the United States.
The Taipei team played teams from all over the world, with the exception of the United States, which again refused to play any foreigners.
However, the Taipei team, gracious in victory, did agree to play a demonstration game against a U.S. team from Chula Vista, CA. The California team won, 6-3. Perhaps if the U.S. team had agreed to play in the international tournament, it might have won the series and could then legitimately claim to be the Little League World Champion.
Sports fans the world over hope that someday the United States Little League organization will drop its crybaby demand that it be automatically given a spot in the final every year, and will play a legitimate series. Then the world will find out if the U.S. Little League has the moxie to become a real world champion. So far they haven’t had the guts to play in an honest tournament.
So congratulations to the Taipei team on winning the real Little League World Series and claiming the title as genuine Little League World Champions.
