It could not have ended any better. 

The El Segundo 12U All Stars won the Little League World Series on Sunday afternoon in the most dramatic style possible: a walk off home run. 

Louis Lappe stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the sixth inning to deliver the game-winning home run; he led the entire Little League World Series with 5 home runs throughout the tournament. 

While the boys from SoCal got off to a hot start – leading 4-1 by the bottom of the fourth inning thanks to RBI doubles from Lucas Keldorf and Jaxson Kalish – Curaçao’s Nasir El-Ossais hit a grand slam to tie the game at 5 runs each. 

And while the Caribbean-based team seemed to be heating up, Lappe’s walk off home run nullified any chance of a comeback in extra innings. 

The boys will return home on Monday, and a parade is set to be held in downtown El Segundo following their arrival.
