Two Taiwanese teams have achieved their goals in this year’s Pony
League Baseball World Series, with one becoming champion of the under-18 Palomino tournament in Laredo, Texas, and the other the victor of the under-12 Bronco tournament in Los Alamitos, California.
In Los Alamitos on Monday, a team comprised of 11 to 12-year-old players from Kaohsiung’s Jhong-Jheng Elementary School overpowered contenders from Mexico City 15-0 in just five innings.
Starting pitcher Sung Po-han and his relief, Hsu Hsiang-chun, suppressed the Mexican batting to become the key players in their team’s victory.
It is the second Bronco League World Series that Taiwan has won since 2016, when a team also made up of players from Jhong-Jheng Elementary School, beat Puerto Rico 4-0 to win the title. [FULL STORY]
