2000s / Danny Almonte Scandal 2001
Remeber Danny Almonte? He was the 5-foot-8 star pitcher at the 2001 Little League World Series. Almonte struck out 62 of the 72 batters he faced. He threw a perfect game too. Danny was honored by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Trouble was Danny was two years too old to be playing in the LLWS. Danny's father, Felipe, had falsified Danny's Dominican Republic birth certificate so it read 1989 instead of 1987. Because Danny towered over most of the other players in the tournament, accusations that he was too old were widespread. The truth was finally uncovered by two journalists from Sports Illustrated. Danny's Bronx, New York team had to forfeit their third-place standing. Felipe Almonte faced charges of filing a false document when he was deported back to the Dominican Republic. To make matters worse, there was no record of Danny attending school in the year his team went to the LLWS. He could not speak any English.
