Thursday's LLWS 2013 schedule has Mexico vs Panama in its live stream and TV schedule, as two great Latin American nations battle it out for a spot in the 2013 Little League World Series' International Championships.
"It's déjà vu all over again," like the great Yogi Berra once said, as today's LLWS 2013 early game kicks off with a rematch of last year's International semi-finals between Mexico (Tijuana, Baja California) and Panama (Aguadulce).
It was almost a year ago to the day that these countries met, with Panama advancing to the bracket finals by a score of 2-1 over "The Land of the Hot Sun."
Can Mexico enact revenge on its Panamanian counterparts and tip the scales in what has become a bitter rivalry?
First pitch for Thursday's LLWS 2013 elimination game is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. EST (1:05 p.m. PST) and Little League Baseball fans can watch every pitch live in high definition on ESPN, ESPN-3 and Watch ESPN Live Stream.
In essence, both, Mexico and Panama have a bone to pick with the Japanese heading into this matchup, as each tries to reach the final stanza for a shot at redemption.
On Wednesday, Japan punched its ticket into the 2013 LLWS International Championship game with a convincing 5-2 win over Mexico.
Panama, who's trying to earn a crack at Japan in the Int'l finals for a second straight year, put itself in a position to do just that by ousting a very tough Chinese Taipei squad by a score of 8-7.
The winner of Thursday's LLWS 2013 Mexico vs. Panama live stream and TV schedule game earns a date to Saturday's showdown with the defending Little League World Series champs.
