ABC scares Japan Little Leaguer with fake spider - for some reason (Video)

For some inexplicable reason, ABC decided to turn their coverage of the Little League World Series championship game into an episode of Punk'd by scaring Japan’s Shunpei Takagi with a fake spider during a segment taped before the game.

Granted that some might find that enteratining, but what exactly was that meant to accomplish? Halloween isn't for another two months. Come on, man, leave the kid alone.

Fortunately, the scare attempt didn't affect Takagi's play on the field, as he hit two home runs in Sunday's title game against the U.S. representative from Chula Vista, California to win the LLWS Championship.
