The 2013 Little League World Series was held in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania from August 15 until August 25.[1] Eight teams from the United States and eight from throughout the world competed in the 67th edition of this tournament.[2] The Musashi-Fuch? Little League of Tokyo, Japan defeated the Eastlake Little League of Chula Vista, California 6-4 in the championship game. For the country of Japan, this was their ninth LLWS championship overall, second consecutive, and the third in four years. This was the last World Series to feature players born in the 20th century.

Tournament changes

It was announced on August 29, 2012 that three of the eight international regions had been realigned. The results of the realignment included Australia having its own region, meaning that the national champion of that country would be given a berth into the Little League World Series. Also, teams from Middle Eastern countries (except Israel and Turkey) would compete to qualify with teams in the Asia-Pacific Region to form the Asia-Pacific and Middle East region. Teams from Africa would compete to qualify with teams from Europe to form the Europe and Africa region.[3]
