Curacao's Jurdrick Profar.

The Southwestern right hander kept the Caribbean entrant off balance all day with a lively fastball, a hard slider and slow curve, throwing a complete game two-hitter. With a pitch count limit of 85, complete game shutouts are rare at any little league game, let alone the World Series Final.
