Every year, the Little League World Series players fill out questionnaires that ask them to indicate their favorite things in different categories -- everything from baseball players and teams to TV shows and food.

With help from the ESPN Stats & Information Group, we went through every questionnaire -- more than 200 overall -- for all 16 teams. As one would expect, the answers were varied, considering half of the young respondents live outside of the United States.

Below are the most popular answers in each category, in addition to the runners-up and "one for fun" -- a response drawn from one player's questionnaire. For the baseball responses, however, the top five options are listed:
