Baseball History The Little League World Series of 1965

About the Little League World Series baseball tournament held in 1965, history of the youth sports event and the games.


The Little League flag remained in the East as Windsor Locks, Conn., turned back Stoney Creek, Canada, 3-1 in the 19th annual Little League World Series that was played before more than 20,000 enthusiastic fans.

It was Dale Misiek's 2-run homer and the clutch pitching of Mike Rocha that kept the title from the 1st Canadian team to reach the championship bracket.

The youngsters from Canada went into the lead in the 1st inning when Jeff Dalton, who had drawn a walk off Roche, moved around the bases and eventually scored on a passed ball. Canada managed to put men on base in every inning but could not score.

In the 4th frame the Connecticut bats exploded when Frank Aniello opened with a single and advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch. Misiek then put his 180 Ibs. into a towering drive that sailed over the centerfield fence giving Windsor Locks a 2-1 lead. The attack continued with one out when Ed Holmes singled up the middle and took 2nd on another wild pitch. Steve Scheerer cracked a sharp single to short left field to score Holmes, and Connecticut had all it needed on the scoreboard.

In the consolation game Waco, Tex., downed Jeffersonville, Ind., 5-1. Teams from Maracaibo, Venezuela; Phoenix, Ariz.; Tokyo, Japan; and Rota, Spain, also proved their competitive spirit in Series play.
