The national team won 2-1 against Mexico in the 2023 Little League Intermediate World Series International Division final held at Max Bear Park in Livermore, California, USA on the 6th (Korean time, 5th local time).
With this, the national team proved that it is still a powerhouse in the under-13 little leagues, perfecting the revenge of losing 6-7 to Mexico in the third game of the final round.
As in the International League final, both teams continued to play until overtime. The two countries, who faced each other 1-1 in regular innings, saved a chance for one out and third base in the ninth overtime with an ending hit that surpassed the height of center fielder Ahn Sang-myeong.
The national team that successfully won the International League for the second time in a row will play the final World Series against the champions of the U.S. region. If this match is won, the national team will bring supremacy five years after winning in 2018, which was recorded before Corona 19. Last year, the national team led by coach Kyu-soo Cho won the International League championship and the overall World Series runner-up.
