Hawaii powered its way to the 2022 Little League Baseball World Series title on Sunday afternoon, defeating Curacao 13-3 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Hawaii, representing the United States’ West region, had a dominant run in the 20-team tournament. The team from Honolulu Little League outscored opponents 60-5 and went 6-0. Hawaii defeated Tennessee in the United States title game on Saturday.
Curacao, from the Caribbean region, won the international championship against Chinese-Taipei, but fell short Sunday. Hawaii hit back-to-back home runs to lead off the home half of the first inning, and then put up seven runs in the third inning to blow the game open. This is the fourth Little League World Series title for a team from Hawaii, and the second in the last four competitions.
The Little League Baseball World Series celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2022, and the event had international participants for the first time since 2019. The 2020 LLWS was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Only U.S. teams were allowed to participate in 2021 when Taylor North Little League from Michigan won the championship. Fans were also welcomed back in the stands this year, as only a limited number of family members were allowed in 2021 for COVID-19 safety precautions. The MLB Little League Classic was held on Sunday, Aug. 21, with the Orioles defeating the Red Sox.
Below is a recap of the tournament, with scores from every game as well as the full list of teams.
