The team from Tokyo, Japan has taken America’s favorite pastime to a new level.  Noriatsu Osaka had three home runs and a triple, as the team from Tokyo, Japan beat Goodlettsville, Tennessee, 12-2, on Sunday in the championship game of the 2012 Little League World Series in South Williamsport, PA.

The Japanese team held Tennessee to just two hits just a day after they scored 24 runs in the US title game. The game ended in the fifth inning after Osaka’s third homer forced the 10-run mercy rule into effect.

The game invented in America is now played all around the world, with the Japanese in love with America’s pastime. Congratulations to the Japanese team. We’ll be back next year to regain our bragging rights!
