The Little League World Series is set to conclude this weekend in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, as the four regional finalists go head-to-head on Saturday to compete for a spot in Sunday's championship game. The favorite in the international field is Chofu City, Japan, who have outscored their opponents 32-2 in three games so far; Chofu City will play Willemstad, Curaçao. In the U.S. championship game on the other side of the bracket, River Ridge, Louisiana, will go up against Wailuku, Hawaii, in a rematch of their first game in the tournament eight days ago, when Wailuku won 5-2. Little League World Series teams consist mainly of boys between 10 and 12, although 12-year-old Minnesota pitcher Maddy Freking became the first girl in the tournament this year since Mo'ne Davis in 2014. ABC will air Japan vs. Curaçao at 12:30 p.m. ET and Hawaii vs. Louisiana at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
