So. IL Miners Sign Danny Almonte

i know there are a few folks from Southern Illinois here who this might interest. the Frontier League team in Marion doesn't start their inaugural season until late-May, but the team has generated a lot of local excitement. that will only pick up with the signing of Danny Almonte, the Little World Series kid who pitched a perfect game but was later found to be too old so his team was disqualified. apparently, this was a conspiracy between Almonte's dad and his coach and the kid knew nothing about.

anyway, he's going to try to make a run at the majors. he's 19 now, with a 90+ mph fastball and a pretty nasty slider (apparently). he was pretty good in high school also, winning two straight PSAL championships and garnering an MVP award in the 2004 title game. i'm looking forward to seeing him. i'm sure you StL-area folks will get opportunities to see him when the Miners play the Grizzlies and Rascals.
