California Beats Japan 2-1 in Little League World Series Final

Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- A team from California beat their Japanese opponents to win the Little League World Series baseball title.

Ocean View Little League of Huntington Beach, California, beat Hamamatsu Minami Little League of Hamamatsu City 2-1 in the championship game today.

The start time for the game at Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, was moved back three hours to 3 p.m. after Tropical Storm Irene battered the east coast.

Before the Edogawa Minami All-Stars from Tokyo won last year’s title, the U.S. had produced five straight Little League World Series champions. The 2010 title was Japan’s first since 2003, when the Musashi Fuchu All-Stars from Tokyo beat Boynton Beach, Florida, 10-1.
