On ESPN now, the supposedly 12 year old pitcher, Danny Almonte, for the the NYC team (you know, the American team that can't speak English) is really 14 years old, is in the country illegally, and has never been to school in NYC, his alleged residence, in the 18 months he is supposed to have been in the U.S. Don't you just love it.

No surprise since he was picthing 15 to 20mph faster than the other kids.

Naw!...It was a 24 years old midget!

Who cares? It is a kids game, kids cheat. Get over it.

And cheating kids grow up into cheating adults. As a result, you have the situation we "enjoy" now. Stay tuned, even better is enroute!

This is all too much fun. Adults getting worked up over a kids game. These are the kinds of adults that scream at the opposite side during little leauge games and who attack other players. Amusing.

Somehow I doubt that it was a bunch of kids who decided to import a team from the Dominican Republic. Then again, it's much easier to go through life with a "So what? Everybody cheats" attitude than to take a stand against the corruption of our society. Just let it slide... and don't worry about a dead intern or a rigged election here or there. [rolleyes]

LMFAOAROTFG. Yeah, just what you said.

This reminds me of adam sandler playing dodge ball against a group of 4th graders in 'billy madison'.

Yeah, and just imagine the pain and misery going on around the world and who knows how many people are going to work themselves into a self-riteous-snit over this. It is actually quite funny.

Hint: a lot of that pain and misery results from people sharing your indifference to corruption. Have you ever wondered why there isn't much economic growth in countries where the rule of law doesn't prevail? Oh, of course not, you're too busy laughing...

Yup, and it is hard to do two things at once. This corruption should be investigated to the depths of it's utter depravity, the guilty parties should be found and exterminated, along with their families. This is a very serious matter!

You guys missed the best part ! Those idiot kids refused to carry the AMERICAN FLAG! They carried Dominican Republic flags until a recent uproar. (they now carry our flag)

Helio. I'm not sure if your posts are in jest or you have a twisted prespective on things. Where I live and the people I associate with believe in honesty, integrity and trust. Without that foundation, I would not survive in business very long and I would be a social pariah. I hope this kid gets his ass handed to him.

I don't follow baseball, I find it boring even when it is done well. But I do appreciate the irony of this whole situation, and find it amusing. I love the tid-bit about how the little league accepted a handwritten birth certificate made by the father. Also the fact that the kid has not gone to school for 18 months, WTF are the truant officers doing? All in all it is great entertainment and I appreciate them doing it just for my benefit.

Been in little league since 1980, can tell you that it happens a lot....in this case, someone had a plan, well ahead of time....we teach our kids early don`t we?....not EVERYBODY cheats.....glad they were exposed.....[grenade]

This is what happens when something that was created as something fun for kids to do gets corrupted by people only interested in making money.
