Almonte can’t steal Oceanside’s spirit

All the hype in 2001 was about Almonte, but 10 years later, Almonte’s baseball days are over. Meanwhile, two Oceanside players—the two smallest—are in the minor leagues.

Matthew Cerda, Oceanside’s 4-foot-10 catcher, grew almost a foot and became one of the best hitters to come out of Oceanside High School. He was drafted in the fourth round by the Chicago Cubs in 2008, and he’s now an infielder for Class A Daytona in the Florida State League, hitting .282.

Bobby Shore, who was limited to pinch-hitting during the LLWS because of an arm injury, pitched in the College World Series for Oklahoma, was drafted by the Seattle Mariners and is now pitching for the Rookie League Pulaski (Va.) Mariners in the Appalachian League.


Oh, uh, if anybody wants to use this as a chatter for the LLWS, go ahead.

Why are grown men being so smug about three kids who aren't going to make it to the major leagues?
