It was a moment between friends — two teams that have bonded over pingpong and video games and baseball over the last three weeks — when the winners gathered in the losers for a shared picture-taking moment Saturday at Lamade Stadium after the U.S. championship game at the Little League World Series. Ocean View, representing Huntington Beach, California and the West Region, earned its spot in the championship game Sunday against Japan by beating the Big Sky Little League team from Billings, Mont., the representatives from the Northwest Region, 11-2.

The recent Little League championship game was such a joy to watch because of the class and respect of the players and coaches for the great game of baseball. I think a tape should be made of the game and copies sent to every manager in the big leagues, with a request that they play it for their team members to show them how baseball courtesy, control of temper, accepting of umpire decisions, etc., can be handled by little boys in a far superior manner than the big "kindergartners" with their poor sport, retaliatory attitudes, childish pouts, etc., that we see on the telecasts of the games of the big leagues.

Taiwan won its 15th Little League World Series championship Saturday, using Pan Chih-Chang's 14 strikeouts and Lin Wei-Chu's grand slam to rout San Ramon Valley, Calif., 11-0. San Ramon's Kevin Graham stifled Taiwan with 78 m.p.h. fastballs in the first two innings, but Fang Sheng's 240-foot home run in the third triggered the onslaught. Taiwan chased Graham in the fifth, and Lin hit his grand slam off Jason Barringer for an 11-0 lead, capping an eight-run inning.
