After more than five decades, a team from Nicaragua will be coming to Williamsport this August as the 14 de Septiembre Little League out of Managua, Nicaragua, clinched a spot in the 75th playing of the Little League Baseball® World Series by defeating Venezuela, 10-0, in the 2022 Latin America Region Championship.
Host of the Region Tournament, 14 de Septiembre Little League finished the event with a 5-1 overall record, bouncing back after a 9-6 loss to the team out of Venezuela earlier in the tournament.
This is the first time 14 de Septiembre Little League will travel to Williamsport to compete in the Little League Baseball World Series, and only the third team from Nicaragua to compete in the global event. Chinandega Little League represented the country in its only two other appearances, recording a combined 2-3 record while placing third in the world at the 1970 LLBWS.
Little League will continue celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the LLBWS for the remainder of the summer leading up to the iconic event in August.
