The 1974 Little League World Series took place between August 20 and August 24 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The Kaohsiung Little League of Kaohsiung, Taiwan defeated the Red Bluff Little League of Red Bluff, California in the championship game of the 28th Little League World Series. All teams were invited to Washington, D.C. after the tournament and were the first official guests greeted by the newly inaugurated President Gerald Ford. After this series, foreign teams were banned from the competition; however, the ban was rescinded one year later allowing foreign teams to qualify for the 1976 series, and each thereafter.

This was the fourth consecutive title for Taiwan. As of 2011 this is the second longest winning streak by a Country/State. This was the last LLWS to match U.S. teams with International teams in the opening round of play. This was also the first, and only, LLWS to feature shutouts in all first round games and second round games of the winner's bracket.
