The championship game of the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA is set for Sunday. It will be a matchup between the team from Matamoros, Mexico (which beat a team from Tokyo 5-4 to win its bracket) and a team from Waipahu, Hawai'i (which beat Lake Charles, Louisiana 7-5).
The kids from Waipahu are about 4800 miles from home while the kids from Matamoros are only about 1580 miles from home.
The last Hawaiian team to win the LLWS was from Ewa Beach in 2005. The last team from Mexico to win the LLWS was the squad from Guadalupe back in 1997.
