Lots of complaints about the size and apparent ages. Do all of those boys look 12 or under?

Is the same age group as Little League team who plays in Pennsylvania? I can tell you my #2 grandson is 12, 5’8” and 165 pounds. Some boys just grow faster.

My nephew at 12-13 yrs was around 5'9" around 175 lbs, he was a big kid. He is almost 24 now and over 6'5" about 255 lbs. It would be a shame if any were found to be outside of the age limit.

What some folks are saying is to look at their faces. 12 and younger?
I was looking at Hector Gomez's social media and you are correct, a lot of comments how the DR team looked a lot older than other teams. One of Vladimir Guerrero's sons was on the team. He (Vladimir) was at the tournament.

Exactly, we have a six year girl in Grade one that is taller, and stronger than most of the kids in Grade four. Her mom is about 5 ' 5'' but her dad her about 6' 4'' and 250 lbs, strong as an ox.

According to a Facebook account, the the play-by-play announcers had doubts 'bout the ages of the Dominican kids in the Series.

I haven't read it, as I'm too lazy to have a FB account, but I just "googled" 'escándalo de niños peloteros dominicanos en la Serie del Caribe Kids,' and the FB account by some "Caribero" fellow came up with the comment.

You can bet your bottom dollar there were age cheaters on that team. For shame.

This was in Panama correct? If so, then I assume if there were some that were over the age limit, false documentation was presented for travel documents. If true, that is just wrong to involve kids that age in something like that.

The LIDOM Instagram page has some photos of the kids. Hard to tell the ages but there are a couple that look a bit older than 12-13 yrs old. Again, involving kids in something like this (if it is true some may be older) is wrong.
