Taiwan wins LLB Junior League World Series final

Jack Regenye, an outfielder from Pennsylvania playing in the Junior League World Series, made the catch of the tournament when he dove over the fence to rob his opponents of a home run.

After beating neighboring DE, 4-0, in the opening round of the East Regionals, they clobbered CT, 13-1.

While Chinese Taipei went on to win the championship 12-1 in five innings for its fifth straight title, Regenye's play will be remembered as an epic win in its own right.

The Junior League World Series is an global tournament for ages 13-15 and is held annually in Taylor City, Michigan, where it has been hosted since the series' inception in 1981.

Talk about the catch of the year. While Taiwan's offense was hitting on all cylinders, starting pitcher Chen Chih-chieh's (陳志杰) defense kept the American hitters at bay. He then leapt to his feet holding the ball up to show to umpires.

Some confusion ensued as the officiating crew initially ruled the play an out, then overturned it, then overturned that ruling back to the original call of an out. Greatest catch I've ever seen.
