Whitefish Bay team play Juniors Little League World Series on ESPN+

A Whitefish Bay youth baseball team (ages 13 and 14) will appear Sunday morning on ESPN+ in the first battle of the Juniors Little League World Series, taking on a team from South Riding, Virginia.

The event, for players only slightly older than the famed Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, is held annually in Taylor, Michigan. Whitefish Bay won the Central Regional Tournament title against a team from Illinois to become one of six American teams to appear on the field.

The 12-team tournament also includes six teams from outside the United States.

South Riding, which won the Southeast Region, and Bay will face off Sunday at 10 a.m. CT and will appear on ESPN+. All matches from the tournament will appear on the service, with the championship match on ESPN2 on August 21.

With a win, Whitefish Bay would play again at 1 p.m. CT on Monday. With a loss, Bay would play again at 7 p.m. CT on August 16.
