Hawaiian Little League Team Wins World Championship

August 25, 2008 · Posted in General, Links, sports 

Caleb Duhay of the Little League Champion team from HawaiiThere might have been very little Filipino representation in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but one championship event this week was full of Pinoy representation as the Waipi’o little league baseball team beat the team from Matamoros, Mexico, 12-3 to win the Little League World Series Sunday in South Williamsport, PA.

The team, representing the US West region, beat the Mexican team, whose players are taller, have averaged eight runs a game and beat Japan’s little league representatives during the International Championship round Saturday. On that day, the Hawaiian little leaguers scored an improbable 7-5 victory against the team from Lake Charles, LA (representing the US Southwest) after rallying from a 5-1 deficit to score six runs in at the top of the 6th and final inning to win the game and move on to the World Championship.

The Aloha State’s team hails from Waipahu, a Honolulu suburb known for its large Filipino population, and owed much of its success to players like pitcher Caleb Duhay (pictured), who pitched 5 1/3 innings with only three earned runs in the final match. Duhay also contributed three runs and a hit of his own at the plate. Catcher Keelen Obedoza scored a hit as well. Other Pinoys on the team such as outfielders Jedd Andrade, Matthew Yap and Jordan Ulep also contributed to the team’s championship.

    So we were at a Filipino restaurant here in Fremont and they had the US final on. We were already done eating but we couldn’t leave because Hawaii was in the process of ripping the hearts out of the Louisiana kids in the top of the 6th inning. Some of the most exciting baseball I’ve seen in a long time.

    Being a Dodger fan, I haven’t seen exciting baseball for a really long time.

    I don’t care though, Go Dodgers! Keep the losing streak alive!

    I have to show some thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular challenge. As a result of searching throughout the search engines and obtaining principles that were not beneficial, I thought my life was gone. Existing without the approaches to the problems you have resolved by means of your main article is a serious case, as well as the kind that would have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across your blog. Your main talents and kindness in playing with all the pieces was useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a thing like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this reliable and result oriented help. I will not be reluctant to propose the sites to anyone who should receive assistance about this issue.
