About the Little League World Series baseball tournament held in 1955, history of the youth sports event and the games.
1955--9TH LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES
This year saw the 1st extra-inning championship game as the Morrisville (Pa.) Little Leaguers battled Delaware Township Little League of New Jersey to a 3-3 tie at the end of 6 innings of regulation play.
The end came in storybook fashion in the bottom of the 7th inning when the Morrisville catcher, Richie Cominski, poled a solo blast into the leftfield bleachers to ice the victory for the Keystone State representatives.
Earlier, in a see-saw duel, New Jersey had scored in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th innings. Morrisville tallied in the 1st, with 2 runs, and tied it in the 4th on Harry Foulke's homerun.
Herb Harrison, the Jersey pitcher, struck out 13 batters before being forced to leave the mound because of the Little League rule limiting pitchers to 6 innings.
The consolation game, won by Auburn, Ala., 1-0 over Winchester, Mass., also went into the 7th inning before being decided. Earlier games had eliminated leagues from Hamtramck, Mich.; Glen Falls, N.Y.; Alexandria, La.; and San Diego, Calif.
