Have you been watching the Little League World Series? Since I was born and lived on Staten Island, for 37 years, I’m somewhat interested in seeing what the S.I. team does in the Series. But, to be candid, I’ve only seen a little of one of the games so far on ESPN…
However, in the game that I did see, I saw that pitcher from Chula Vista Park View – Luke Ramirez. Have you seen him yet?
Luke Ramirez is 6-foot-2 and weighs 205 pounds. Man, that’s crazy!
How is a kid, 11- or 12-years old, supposed to step into a batter’s box, with Ramirez hulking on the mound, just 46 feet away?
Here’s a picture of Luke taking a throw at first, if you need a visual:

Forget Chad Gaudin and Sergio Mitre…maybe the Yankees can pick up this Raimrez kid and let him help fill out their rotation between now and October?
