The 2015 Little League World Series was held in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, from August 21 until August 30, 2015.[1] Eight teams from the United States and eight from throughout the world competed in the 69th edition of the tournament. The Tokyo Kitasuna Little League from Tokyo, Japan, defeated Red Land Little League of Lewisberry, Pennsylvania, in the championship game, 18–11, which was the most total runs scored (29) in any final game. It was Japan's fourth title in the past six years. The tournament was originally scheduled to begin on August 20, however, inclement weather resulted in the postponement of all first-day games, resulting in eight games being played on August 21, a LLWS first.[2]
