The 68th Little League Baseball World Series is currently underway in Williamsport, Pa. And while Mo'ne Davis has already made history and Erick Figueroa has already, well, shown up, Ruy Martinez deserves some attention as well. The second baseman for Mexico stands 4-foot-8-inches tall. He looks significantly younger than the 6-foot-4 Figueroa (even though the 13-year-old Martinez is the same age as his counterpart from Puerto Rico). Look at this photo for proof.
But in an elimination game in the International bracket Monday against Australia, Martinez had himself a day. The infielder went 3-for-3 at the plate and helped Mexico win 6-2. But it was his third hit, a mammoth blast to straightaway center field, that was truly impressive. Next up for Team Mexico is Team Latin America out of Venezuela on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET.
