Louis Lappe is a two-way athlete for El Segundo, representing California and the West Region in the Little League World Series.

He stands 6 ft 1 inch tall, which is exceptional for a young player at 12 years old.

Nicknamed “The Natural,” the young player carried his team throughout the regionals.

Recently, Louis played a pivotal role in bringing home the Little League World Series championship title after a 6-5 win over the Curacao.

In short, he scored a walk-off home run in the final to secure California the championship, marking his tournament-leading fifth homer.

Regardless, he won’t be eligible to compete in the Little League World Series from next time onwards, as only players aged 10-12 are allowed.

Louis Lappe maintains a high level of privacy and has no presence on social media platforms.

According to reports, Louis’s parents gave birth to him in 2010 in California.

Nevertheless, according to ESPN, Louis claims that his dad is his most prominent role model who continually inspires & motivates him.

Thus, information about them is non-existent on the internet.

Likewise, there isn’t sufficient information to confirm whether the athlete is the only child of the Lappe family.

Similarly, it has been speculated that his parents are from Germany. ‘Lappe’ is a family name in Germany.

There is a strong possibility that Louis’s parents immigrated to the USA from Germany before his birth.
