U.S. Team to Watch: Eastlake of Sammamish, Washington

Eastlake of Sammamish, Washington isn't the team that comes to mind when you first think of who to watch at the 2013 Little League World Series. After all, Washington hasn't been the source of Little League World Series contenders in recent seasons.

With that being said, few teams enter this competition with as much momentum as Eastlake.

East Lake defeated Universal of Corpus Christi in its opening game of the 2013 Little League World Series, winning by a count of 8-4. This continued the team's hot play from the qualification stages, where it won a close game and a blowout.

That's how you prepare yourself for impact performances.

Eastlake outlasted upset-minded Idaho by a score of 5-4 in the regional semifinals, proving the ballclub's legitimacy as well as its prowess in late-game situations. In the Northwest final, it dominated Montana by a score of 13-1 to build a great deal of momentum.

With an early victory in South Williamsport, it's safe to say this bunch is for real.

The key for Sammamish's pride will be the development of its pitching staff, which will be forced to face a handful of imposing lineups. If the pitchers are able to limit the production of the opposition, Eastlake's bats may be enough to take this team far.

If not, Washington's dreams may end prematurely.

 

International Team to Watch: Musashi Fuchu of Tokyo, Japan

Who else?

Japan has held a tight grip on the Little League World Series, owning eight titles at the event and four since 2001. That includes last season, when Tokyo Kitasuna defeated Goodlettsville of Tennessee to complete an undefeated run to the title.

All eyes are on Musashi Fuchu to continue Japan's success in 2013.

Musashi Fuchu had a tough path to the Little League World Series, but the team used its balance to defeat all that it came across. It won 6-3 in the Round of 16, 11-1 in the quarterfinals, 8-5 during the semifinals and earned an 11-6 finals victory over Miyagino.

In other words, Musashi Fuchu can do a little bit of everything.

As the tournament plays out, expectations will be high for this year's Japanese powerhouse. This ballclub is carrying the burden of past success stories, thus leaving the world in competition with one another for who will challenge the defending country.

It may be a new team in a new year, but the pressure remains the same.

There are countless other international teams to watch, but Musashi Fuchu is the favorite to win it all. At this point, it'd be more shocking to see this team lose than to watch it achieve victory.

Just remember: Anything is possible in South Williamsport.
