International Baseball Update (August 17, 2011)

LLWS:
The Little League World Series starts tomorrow. Schedule and TV listings are at the link above. If you are filling out a bracket (and if you ARE filling out a bracket, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU THESE KIDS ARE 12 YEARS OLD), it could be difficult this year, as the opening games of the double-elimination tournament seem pretty balanced, with the exception of Venezuela vs. the Netherlands (but then again, maybe young Honkballers are just as Cinderella as adult ones).

AMERICAS:
Cuba’s team for the two October tournaments this year (IBAF World Cup and Pan Am Games) has had preliminary selections made.

Up north in Canada, rumors that a Jays affiliate may form.

Dave Serrano of the Tenn. Volunteers will be the manager of the 2012 US Collegiate National Team.
