The Little League World Series has officially started, and as you can see, a pitcher from Puerto Rico snapped off a curveball that had the Panamanian kid buckling. It happens.
I remember the first time I had my knees buckled. I was 13. This kid, Brian Adams, had just started in the league and had a nice fastball. It was hitable.
And then he dropped a breaking ball on me and I crumbled. There’s no worse feeling in baseball than the first time your knees buckle and taking a fastball in the center of your back.
Panama leads 6-0.
