El Segundo 12U All Stars win Little League World Series 


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.
