For the second year in a row, Livermore and California District 57 Little League have been selected as the hosts for the Intermediate Little League World Series.

Last year, more than 30,000 people, along with teams from all over the United States and several other countries, flocked to Livermore for the seven day, 20-game inaugural series. 

The Izumisano Little League team from Osaka Japan, representing the Asia-Pacific region, defeated Pennsylvania's Collier Township/Chartiers Valley Little League team, winning the championship game, 10-1.

Livermore Mayor John Marchand said, "The city of Livermore is excited to see the Series return and we thank the many volunteers for their efforts.  With our downtown parade for the players, the awards ceremony at the Shea Plaza and the tremendous attendance at the games, our Livermore community demonstrated their overwhelming support  for the 50/70 Little League World Series.  This year we anticipate that it will be even bigger and better."

The Pleasanton National Little League represented the Tri-Valley during two of the games in the series, with a perfect game being pitched on July 31.

The 2013 Little League World series was aired nationally on ESPN.
