Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pa., will be the site for the 2013 Little League World Series Championship Game between (4-0) Tokyo, Japan and (4-0) Chula Vista, Calif., beginning at 3 p.m. EST (12 p.m. PST) on ABC and ESPN Live Stream.
This year's finale features two LLWS representatives with rich winning traditions, in the midst of one of the most competitive stretches in Little League Baseball history.
Combined, Calif., and Japan are responsible for 15 Little League World Series titles total, and have put a stranglehold on this yearly tournament since 2009.
Dominating the field, they've created a rivalry like no other, alternating championships over the last four years and meet today tied at 2-2 over that span.
For Japan, the defending champs are synonymous with winning baseball at this level and thus, came in as the LLWS 2013 odds favorites.
With eight Little League World Series banners (1967, 1968, 1976, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2010, 2012), "The Land of the Rising Sun" is trying to inch closer to the all-time record of fifteen LLWS titles (Taiwan).
For Calif., this state defines winning baseball in the United States and its record in LLWS play solidified Chula Vista as the team to beat in its bracket.
With seven LLWS pennants heading into today's finale (1961, 1962, 1963, 1992, 1993, 2009, 2011), the "Golden State" would be thrilled to draw even with Japan in the history books by defeating the best players its country has to offer this year.
