Little League World Series Champ
In 2004, Jonathan Schoop won the Little League World Series with his Willemstad, Curacao team in Williamsport, PA.
I was pretty excited when I uncovered this one because the LLWS is an awesome event. I was fortunate to go to Williamsport in 1998 to watch Toms River, New Jersey win the title. It’s just an outstanding event.
Schoop’s team actually made it to Williamsport in both 2003 and 2004. In 2003, they lost in the International Championship game.
I attached the links to check out the box scores and the games from 2003 and 2004. He was one of their best players. He actually earned the save in the title game in 2004.
I have contacted the media people in Williamsport and we are going to do a full story on it in the third issue of Playball.
