Japan Wins Little League World Series For Second Consecutive Year


Japan became the 2013 Little League Baseball World Series Champion for the second time in a row yesterday after a 6-4 victory over Chula Vista, Calif., in front of 28,119 people. Chula Vista is the 2013 United States champion.


All the teams performed admirably throughout the tournament, the last little bit of summer for most of them. Eastlake Little League from Sammamish, Washington, the only team to be provided with GelDefender head pads, was unfortunately eliminated Friday in a 13-14 extra-inning nail-biter against New England. Congratulations to all players from around globe for a job well done!


*Scientists have no conclusive evidence as to whether or how the reduction of g forces during impacts reduces the number or degree of concussions and head injuries. GelDefenderTM products provide supplemental padding as well as cooling and comfort benefits when used with helmets and caps. Participants in activities in which head impacts can occur should always use tested and approved helmets for protection. However, no helmet or supplemental padding can protect the user from all serious head or neck injuries that can result from impacts.
