Mexico second baseman Ruy Martinez, all 4-foot-8 of him, had a heck of a day at the plate in yesterday's 6-2 win over Australia, going 3-for-3 including this home run to center:
The 13-year-old Martinez has showed, aside from defensive prowess and some pop with the bat, a definite knack for physical humor. Here he is with Puerto Rico's 6-foot-4, 229-pound Erick Figueroa.
Just a slight height difference between these two Little League World Series players...6'4" Erick Figueroa is 13! pic.twitter.com/pjm1Gioxjt
