Rhode Island Meets Taiwan in Title Game

August 24, 1996|From Associated Press

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Taiwan, which has beaten four opponents by a combined score of 49-6, meets Rhode Island today in the championship of the 50th Little League World Series.

The U.S. team from Cranston, a suburb of Providence, will be facing a country whose teams have won the Series 11 times in the last 22 years by scores such as 17-3, 21-1 and 12-0.

But Kirkland, Wash., beat Taiwan, 6-0, in the 1982 championship game, and Trumbull, Conn., was a 5-2 winner over Taiwan in 1989.
