Everyone loves the Little League World Series. How could you not? Young kids playing a game they love. Raw emotion. Talent. Tears. And every once in a while, that iconic moment that’ll be replayed over and over again on SportsCenters and news stations.
This year’s LLWS kicked off earlier this month, featuring 52 teams battling for just eight spots, including the defending champs from Japan — although the United States still holds the all-time mark with 33 titles. The highlight so far was the amazing play of pitcher Mo’Ne Davis from Philadelphia. A 13-year-old girl throwing complete games and garnering national magazine covers? It was awesome.
Over the years, we’ve seen some incredible plays. With the series in full swing now, take a look back as we feature some of the greatest moments in LLWS history.
