    Background: Taiwan's Hua Hsing Junior High School team met baseball opponents from Guam in Taipei over the weekend to decide which team would represent the Far East in this year's Little League World Series Baseball competition scheduled to be held in the United States next month.

    It was to be the Taiwan team's day - they went on to beat the Guam team eleven to nil. They were the only teams taking part in the qualifying rounds in the Far East.

    It would be Taiwan's second participation in the Little League World Baseball Series. Last year they won the title and returned home to Taipei to a rousing reception from the capital's population.

    The Taiwanese layers demonstrated their skill in the game with Guam over the weekend. They scored four points in the first innings, five in the fifth and one in the sixth.

    They also displayed some remarkable defensive tactics when fielding against the Guam players, particularly in the fifth and sixth innings when the visitors hit several fast balls. Only quick fielding prevented them from scoring on numerous occasions.
