On Aug. 28, Hawaii’s Honolulu Little League won the Little League World Series championship with a 13-3 win against Curaçao. This was the the fourth time in 17 years a team from Hawaii has won the youth baseball tournament and the second championship for Honolulu, who won the title in 2018. Gerald Oda, head coach and manager of the Honolulu Little League, is an SGI-USA member who credits their wins to his mentor, Ikeda Sensei, and his Buddhist practice, which have given him passion and purpose (read an interview with Mr. Oda in the Sept. 14, 2018, World Tribune).
