The 2015 Little League World Series ended with Tokyo Kitasuna beating Red Land Little League 18-11 in the championship game. Pearland West Little League finished in third place.

A couple of quick note for Tokyo Kitasuna:

  • The offense went 51-for-143 with ten home runs and thirty RBI.
  • Kengo Tomita went 8-for-16 with three home runs and four RBI.
  • Shingo Tomita went 7-for-15 with four home runs and six RBI.
  • Fukutaro Kiyomiya is the younger brother of Kotaro Kiyomiya. Fukutaro was used as a player off the bench (he did make the starting line-up once). He hit a home run during the LLWS just like his older brother in 2012. Fukutaro's final line: 3-for-10 with one home run, one RBI, and three strikeouts.
  • Kabu Kikuchi struck out twenty-four over fourteen innings of work. He started three games during the tournment. He tossed a four-hit shutout and struck out ten against Mexico during the International Championship on August 29.
