Monroe's Danny Almonte proves he's got the right stuff in PSAL championship

Danny Almonte has been trying to prove that he has what it takes ever since he was found to be over age at the Little League World Series three years ago. After his performance against George Washington in the PSAL city championship he has shown that he can pitch.

Almonte, who plays for James Monroe High School, was brilliant in the championship game from his first pitch. He fanned the first five batters and was never in danger of being scored on. He finished with 11 strikeouts as part of a 1-hit shutout.

Almonte was named the games most valuable player, answering all questions about his talent on the pitcher's mound.
