The last time a team from Southern California won the Little League World Series, Jeff Burroughs, now a former American League most valuable player, was still perfecting his home run swing at Stearns Park in Long Beach. That was in 1963. Burroughs went on to play for 16 seasons in the major leagues and hit 240 home runs before retiring in 1985. But he never left the diamond altogether. Today at 1 p.m.

Baseball has been called America's pastime, been used as a description of Americana along with hot dogs and apple pie, and, even in these days of high prices, remains a sport that is still affordable for most families. Baseball is loading the kids into the station wagon and heading for the ballpark. It's going to the game with your father and hearing him tell how Stan Musial used to hit, or how Bobby Thomson hit that home run to win the 1951 pennant for the Giants.

When he was 3 years old, nothing in his home was safe. If Sean Burroughs could pick it up he'd throw it----mostly with disastrous results. At 5, with anything that resembled a baseball bat in his hands, no lamp or table leg was safe. "He already exhibited coordination in his throwing," his father, Jeff Burroughs, said. "But it caused extensive damage around the house." That spunk reared again this week at the Little League World Series each time the plucky 11-year-old stepped into the batter's box. In the top of the fourth inning Tuesday, with his Long Beach team tied 4-4 and struggling with Hamilton Square, N.J., Burroughs tapped his bat on the plate five times in front of 13,500 people, calling for the home run gods to deliver.

Long Beach opens defense of its world title at 5 p.m. PDT today in the opening round of the 47th Little League World Series against Hamilton, Ohio, the Central Region champion. Long Beach is the first team to win consecutive Western Regional titles. It was declared the World Series champion last year after it was determined that a Philippine team that defeated Long Beach in the championship game, 15-4, had used overage players. Four players from the 1992 Long Beach team return.

It propels Long Beach to a 5-2 victory over San Ramon Valley in the final game of the Western Regional in San Bernardino.

When Sean Burroughs steps to the plate in the Little League World Series, dozens of children scramble from their hillside perches beyond Lamade Stadium to stand behind the right-field fence. Two hundred feet away, the left-handed hitting standout of the Long Beach All-Stars waves an aluminum bat in the still central Pennsylvania air, eagerly awaiting a pitch he can drive over the short fences.
