When Little Leaguers play a World Series, it's really a world series, with eight international teams represented in the 16-team field. The 63rd Little League World Series championship game at Lamade Stadium in South Williamsport, Pa. saw a US team from San Diego suburb Chula Vista take on the Asia Pacific champ from Taoyuan, Taiwan.
