2022 Little League World Series

From BR Bullpen

The 2022 Little League World Series was the 75th Little League World Series. It marked a return to normalcy after the cancellation of the 2020 tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the restriction of the 2021 tournament to teams from the United States only. The team from Honolulu, HI went undefeated in the tournament and won, 13-3, over the team from Willemstad, Curaçao to claim the title. It was a dominating performance for the Hawaiians, who won all six of their games by a combined score of 60-5.

The start of the tournament was marred by an off-field accident on August 15th when a player for the Santa Clara, UT team, 12-year-old Easton Oliverson suffered a serious head injury from falling from his bunk bed in the dormitory. Luckily, he was found by a teammate and could be rushed to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. By the time games started, his life was no longer in danger. He fell a second time while in hospital, but did not aggravate his injuries.
