The Little League World Series is just around the corner, which means that it’s time for these kids to go Big League. The Little League World Series is great, because it puts kids on the stage. Seeing 10-12 year olds get the MLB treatment is always fun, from their name cards to them highlighting the things that they like.

So, who will steal the show this year?

As always, the bracket is going to include eight United States regions and eight international teams. The United States regions will play each other, as will the international ones, until the winners of each bracket square off in the final game. Last year, Japan defeated Lufkin Little League, representing the Southwest Region out of Lufkin, Texas.

Here’s the schedule for each day. Scores will be updated as games are completed. All games can be streamed on WatchESPN.
