Erick Figueroa is only 13 years old, but the Little League player who plays for the Caribbean team already has a huge size advantage on most of the other kids he is facing in the tournament.
The Little Leaguers shouldn't feel too bad, though, because at 6'4" and 229 pounds, Figueroa is bigger than a lot of Major League Baseball players.
