The story is mostly about the high school team he’s helping coach now, but this line sticks out: “Despite putting up impressive numbers the past two seasons at Western Oklahoma College, Almonte wasn’t drafted, in part because of his inglorious history.”
Anyone think for a moment that if Almonte was a legitimate prospect that a team would pass him by simply because he pulled the wool over some people’s eyes back at the Little League World Series a decade ago? I sure don’t.
