Venezuela’s San Francisco Little League Earns First Trip to Williamsport with Region Championship

2023 LLB Latin America Region Champions

San Francisco Little League from Maracaibo, Venezuela, will make its first trip to Williamsport for the 2023 Little League Baseball® World Series (LLBWS), Presented by T-Mobile, after being crowned the Latin America Region Champion on Sunday, July 9.

Despite heavy rains that caused multiple stoppages and a suspension of play, San Francisco LL was able to take home a 2-1 victory over Cardenales Little League (Barquisimeto, Venezuela) in the championship game. With the win, San Francisco LL finished the tournament with a 6-0 record to earn the championship banner and punch a ticket to Williamsport.

While a first time for San Francisco Little League, this will be the 21st time a team from Venezuela will play in the LLBWS, with the country’s latest appearance coming in 2019 when Cacique Mara LL finished the tournament with a 2-2 record after being eliminated by the eventual runners-up from Curaçao.

With the first-round matchups of the 2023 LLBWS announced on June 6, in coordination with the anniversary of the first-ever Little League® game played in 1939, San Francisco LL will face off against the winner of Game 1, between Europe and Africa and Panama, in Game 9 of the series on Friday, Aug. 18, at 1 p.m. ET in Volunteer Stadium.

The 2023 Little League Baseball World Series, Presented by T-Mobile, is set to take place August 16-27. More information about the 2023 Little League World Series tournaments, including full schedules and downloadable brackets, can be found at LittleLeague.org/WorldSeries.
