Huntington Beach is the first Los Angeles/Orange County team to win the World Series since the Sean Burroughs led Long Beach team took home the title in back-to-back years in 1992 and 1993.

Chula Vista won the title in 2009.

    WOW! all white boys, how often do you see that?

    Very biased finals setup. It’s always the USA vs. an international team so the USA gets 50-50 chance of winning every year.

    What “Sean Burroughs led Long Beach team”? He never led the team and the only reason he’s part of the team was his dad is the coach.
