I don't watch much baseball, but I do watch the Little League World Series, to me it's one of the most enjoyable and genuine atmospheres in sports, kids just out there playing the game they love.

    And of course the proud parents and families supporting their kids and their teams.

    Born in Moca in the Dominican Republic, Almonte was a Little League pitcher who threw up to 79 miles per hour (127 km/h). Considered a phenomenon as he led his Bronx team to a third-place finish in the 2001 Little League World Series, Almonte was revealed to have actually been two years too old to play Little League baseball. Although there were many allegations during the 2001 Series, the truth was not revealed until weeks later.

    Kid on Chinese Taipei throwing 81/82 this year with nasty breaking pitch. He looks 18, but presumably is the right age. I think he has given up just one hit in the whole tournament.

    It just doesn't get any better than this in sports, California vs Curacao today in the championship game, Curacao hits a grand slam to tie the game, and then California hits a walk-off homerun to win it all.

    I don't know if it was in the above video, or another that I watched, but the kid does a huge bat flip. I guess that is no longer a hill worth dying on. Lol
