Bring Your Birth Certificate

Adam Loewen, currently pitching vs. the Yankees with the Baltimore Orioles, was supposedly 6'4", 180 lbs. in Little League (AS A 12 YEAR-OLD). Re-read that sentence!

It goes without saying that Loewen led his Canadian squad (their SS was probably Steve Nash) to the Little League World Series.

That is insane - imagine facing far "out of the bucket" would you be stepping?

The 22-year-old Loewen is currently listed at 6'5", 235 lbs. He is a former #4 overall pick by Baltimore in the 2002 draft. Loewen's problem?? Much like young pitching prospects and/or projects...LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
