Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Erick Figueroa is only 13 years old, but the Little League player who plays for the Caribbean team already has a huge size advantage on most of the other kids he is facing in the tournament. The Little Leaguers shouldn't feel too bad, though, because at 6'4" and 229 pounds, Figueroa is bigger than a lot of Major League Baseball players.

I wonder if he has some kind of genetic disease?

Yeah, his genes were born 4 years before every other 13-year old's. I trust the birth certificates provided by some of these team's kids as much as I trust that Eric Holder will do the right thing sometime.

That was my second thought. So you think he'll be brought up to the majors when he's "14"?

Just pitch him high and inside and we will see if he can turn that big body.

Luke Ramirez was 6'0" and 212 lbs. when he played for the Chula Vista Little League All Stars and World Series Champions in 2009. He was the second best hitter in a lineup that hit 19 homers in five WS games.

Oh yea, and his birth certificate is legit: hs.utpreps.com

They should send that kid to every baseball camp they can get their hands on. When he hits his growth max in high school, he can probably write his ticket in any sport.
