Little League Baseball World Series 2009: Chula Vista (USA) beats Chinese Taipei (Taiwan)

In their first trip back to the little league world series since 1996, Taiwan, battling under their international alias of Chinese Taipei, lost after putting the US team on the ropes in the third inning with a set of back to back home runs. The US team came back and eventually won by a 6-3 margin. This is the worst news in Taiwanese baseball since Jimmy Wong hurt his foot and subsequently stalled his career just by running the base paths in Houston.

Taiwan is well known for being in the little league world series and, perhaps, fudging the rules a bit so they could dominate for long stretches. They have 17 championships to date, second to none other than the USA (with 32).
