So do they only play five innings or did the US get the mercy rule?

That's the thing about baseball games: they never end in a tie. Even if takes years and costs millions of lives.

Well, it's literally true. It's certainly not a repeat if it didn't happen the first time.

I can't tell if my sarcasm detector is broken or if everyone missed the joke.

1945 was Europe, not the Pacific theater. If you want to troll, at least get something correct so it has a kernel of believability.
 
2012-08-26 10:46:30 PM
In all fairness to the US Southeastern team, in the US Championship game they played on Saturday the final score was 24-16 in seven innings (tied 15-15 after 6), with only 6 total runners left on base, and there were something like 350+ total pitches. With only one day rest, taking on the Japanese team could not be easy.

Umm, the Pacific theater also ended in 1945. Although subby would have been more accurate with a reference to Pearl Harbor in 1941 or the Phillipines in 1942.

Alternate headline in case of US win:
Tennessee contributes to defeat of Japan. This is not a repeat from 1945.

Yeah that had to suck for the kid who had never pitched in this to have to get the shiat end of the stick.......

And how long until Japan is stripped of this title? I mean really? A japanese kid 6' tall? Hell you can always spot foreigners in large crowds when you are over in japan, they are the ones almost a foot taller than the locals, it was nice when we were out since we could just spot each other by looking across the room.

That's not how the people of Japan saw it. Or the guys in my family that were over there still fighting.

And how many white Americans are 6'3" at the age of 13, like that Smith kid from Petaluma (CA)? Genetic outliers are genetic outliers.

Congratulations to Japan, their pitching was incredible, unlike all the other teams where it was often a case of "Is he going to hit the backstop on the fly or merely take a couple a couple of bounces"?

1941, Subby. Japan surrendered in '45.
 
2012-08-27 03:35:37 AM
There were a few winning dumb shiats on Twitter, including one who asked "Why does China always make the final of the little league?" and a few who said "Yeah, the Tennessee team lost but they were playing against a WHOLE COUNTRY."

if you want to get technical... Goodlettsville (a town of 15k) lost to Tokyo (a metropolis of 13 million)

Why do people watch the LLWS but not the equivalent for high school or college? It's kind of creepy to me...

meanmutton: Why do people watch the LLWS but not the equivalent for high school or college? It's kind of creepy to me...


If I had to guess I'd say that it's because little league was the level that most people got to in their baseball careers.

/I find it creepy, too
//and it really annoys me that it gets so much coverage when there are actual sports leagues that don't get anything

Is there a HS equivalent? National Legion tournament or something?

I follow college up until my team is out. I'll follow the CWS a little after that, but I couldn't tell you who won this year. I know USC won the two prior years, mostly because they knocked my team out along the way last year.
 
2012-08-27 11:17:19 AM
Genuine question. Is it A, B, C or....?

A) Are these teams 'club' teams who won their league, then regionals then nationals? No 'pickups/ringers' - just the actual team that started in the spring.

B)Are these teams 'select' players from one league of six or eight teams? The Goodlettsville little league might have 6 teams , say, so 90 kids. Is the GoodlettsvilleKentucky team then the best 15 kids of those 90? And they won a state and then regional (South East USA) tournaments against similarly constructed teams? I suspect this is right.....

C) Are these teams state all-star teams, the best 15 kids from all of Kentucky (and the best 15 from all of Tokyo??) it can't be this one, can it?

What constraints or rules are in place to prevent Teams from loading up ridiculously?

Thanks

Japan didn't play the United States in the Little League world series in 1945. The first LLWS was in 1947. However, in 1967, the first time Japan played the United States, they won. So it could be a repeat from 1967

A hell of a lot more people played little league and can relate than the number that went on to HS baseball.

You are correct that it's B. The USA team was the all-star team from the Goodlettsville LL. They beat teams from Columbia, West Knox, and South Nashville to win their state title. They then beat Shinnston, WV; Irmo, SC; Greenville, NC; and Warner Robins, GA to win the Southeast title and advance to Williamsport.

And he wasn't there was there? The Japanese had a couple guys taller than the average adult male on their team, which means they were tired of getting beat and raised these kids for the LLWS or they were fudging their ages. Never bothered me much since most of the kids playing were not even the best the USA had, the best play on traveling teams.

I'm kind of sad they stopped the game. Didn't tenn score like11 runs in one inning against Petaluma? 10 runs is a lot, but not impossible to overcome.
