Amazing but scary
Kalen Pimentel tied a Little League World Series record for a regulation, six-inning game with 18 strikeouts to lead Rancho Bueno Vista of Vista, Calif., past Kentucky in the Little League World Series on Saturday.
Pimentel, who looks like he’s 15, pitches like a Major Leaguer, effectively threw both a fastball and curve. Pimentel was topping out at 75 mph, which is equivalent to 98 mph in The Show.
It’s an amazing story, but I am a bit concerned that Pimentel is already throwing a curve. It puts tremendous strain on a young player’s arm. I don’t want to see the kid blow out his arm at such a young age.
