Little League champs arrive back in South Korea
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The captain of the South Korean team that won the Little League World Series says he wants to keep winning baseball championships with his friends when they grow up.
Jae Yeong Hwang says he would like to reunite with his teammates as adults and win the World Baseball Classic, an international baseball tournament.
Hwang and his teammates received a big welcome on their return as more than 200 people gathered at Incheon International Airport. They held placards and handed over flower bouquets. Many were teammates from domestic teams.
The South Koreans, the Asia-Pacific Region champions, beat Chicago 8-4 on Sunday. It was the first South Korean championship since back-to-back wins in 1984 and 1985.
