2022 Little League World Series and highlights

The Hawaiian kids returned home for the fourth time in the World Junior Championships with a 13-3 victory over Curaçao in Sunday’s championship game, outsmarting their opponent 60-5 in six games during this year’s tournament.

The LLWS’ 75th anniversary is even more special – it’s the first year since 2019 that international teams have participated, as well as the first year to expand the tournament. The number of teams in the Little League Baseball World Series (LLBWS) has increased to 20 teams and the number of Little League Softball World Series (LLSWS) teams has increased to 12.

The LLSWS champion was crowned earlier this month, as Texas brought the championship back to the Southwest with a 5-4 win over Maryland.

This year’s celebrations also saw the Boston Red Sox meet the Baltimore Orioles in the MLB Little League Classic on August 21 at historic Bowman Field in Williamsport. The Orioles beat the Red Sox 5-3 in that match – after slipping down the famous hill with the Little Leaguers of course.

We’ve got results and some of the best highlights from this year’s LLWS Championships, with full coverage over here.
