This year’s Little League World Series Championship Weekend is taking place Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 at Howard J. Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The Pabao Little League team is amongst the four best teams in the world along with the Fu-Lin Little League team from China, the Honolulu Little League team from Hawaii and the Nolensville Little League team from Tennessee.
This will be Curacao’s second consecutive time in the International Championship game, after placing second in the 2019 Little League World Series. This year, Pabao’s Little League team has achieved win after win withno margen for error, with three of the elimination games being decided by two runs or less. The pitchers have been the strength of this team, with Reangelo Decaster, Jay-Dlynn Wiel and Davey-Jay Rijke shutting down opposing hitters.
With his two other pitchers unavailable for the International Championship game, manager Zaino Everett will likely turn to the hard-throwing Reangelo Decaster to face Chinese Taipei. So far, he has surrendered only one run through seven innings pitched, striking out 13 batters in the process.
