SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Vice President Joe Biden fondly recalled playing youth baseball in Pennsylvania while being honored at the Little League World Series.

Biden was enshrined into Little League's Hall of Excellence before Sunday's title game between California and Chinese Taipei.

Accompanied by three granddaughters, Biden told the crowd he started out in Little League as an 8-year-old playing shortstop for the Green Ridge Little League in Scranton before moving to center field.

Biden joked that if he was given the choice as a child to pitch in the World Series or be vice president, he would pick the World Series.

Sporting a Little League World Series hat, Biden then signed a few autographs.

He did not take questions from reporters.
