The Philippines dominated the 2008 ASPAC Regionals held in Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).  The Junior League team is composed of 13-14 year old boys who are members of the International Little League Association of Manila (ILLAM) Charter.

Of the 14, Catangui, Habana, Banzon and San Juan are returning players from last year's team that saw action in the Junior League World Series.
