Almonte, the star pitcher of a Little League team from the Bronx, N.Y., pitched his squad into the LL World Series, where he threw a perfect game.

However, his team, the Rolando Paulino All-Stars, was stripped of its district, state and region titles and of its third-place finish at the Series and remained in Little League on a probationary basis after it was proven that Almonte was actually 14, two years older than the LL age limit.
