The Little League World Series has been around since 1947, when the Williamsport, Pa,. team captured the first title. Back then, it was just an American tournament, but it has since integrated teams from all around the world to create a diverse, exciting month of baseball.

The tournament shares its name with the Major League championship, the World Series. Apart from the fact that they're both baseball competitions, the two series are very different.
