The Taoyuan City team prevailed over Taitung County 6-5 yesterday to claim the Toto Cup Little League Championship title, while Nantou County overwhelmed Chiayi County 15-0 in the battle for third place at Taipei’s Youth Park baseball field.
With the title win, Taoyuan City earned the right to represent Taiwan at the Asia-Pacific Zone playoffs in the U12 Division, which is to take place in Fukuoka, Japan, in July.
