Little League International reports that the Pariba baseball team from Curaçao, in representation of the Caribbean region, have captured the 2018 Senior League (ages 13-16) Baseball World Series Championship by defeating Naamans from Wilmington, Delaware, representing the USA, 7-2 in the final game.
In early July, Curaçao’s Pariba team had defeated Puerto Rico in a thrilling extra-inning comeback victory to become the Caribbean region’s representative at the 2018 World Series. The World Series were held in Easley, South Carolina, between July 28 and August 5. There, Curaçao defeated Italy (representing Europe/Africa) twice, and also Venezuela (representing Latin America) to move on to the final against Naamans from the East Region of the USA.
It is the second time that Curaçao have won the Senior League Baseball World Series, after they did so in 2002, and the fourth time that they have reached the final.
