Mexican Joey Meneses visited the Mexican team of Williamsport

Mexican baseball player from Washington, Joey Meneses, visited the Tijuana Municipal team, which represents Mexico in the Little League World Series

Joey Meneses, the current idol of Mexican baseball and player to watch for the team that represents the region of Mexico in the Little League World Series.

These little ones watched from the first three rows behind the Nationals dugout before their game against the Phillies at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Several of the players and coaches, clad in team green T-shirts, raised their mobile devices as “CaballoJoey” made his way to home plate for his first at-bat in the Little League Classic.

Meneses greeted the crowd with a bases-loading hit to center field for the Nationals, then scored two batters later to lead his team to a 4-3 win over the Phillies.

Before the game, Meneses had donned his hero’s cape to visit the team in the dugout ahead of their 10-1 win over Canada. His pride in seeing these aspiring Aztec baseball players was immense. Surely he remembered his days as a small baseball player in his native Culiacán, Sinaloa, the first seeds of success that led him to wear the Mexican jersey in the World Classic, and that today has him as the representative of our country in the Major Leagues:

“I love my country. It’s a cool thing when you see a team from Mexico in this tournament. You always want to play for your country. That made me very proud.”

Players from the Mexican ninth presented LLWS pins to Washington’s first baseman, outfielder, and designated hitter, and he reciprocated with caps from the Nationals, now a key member of the rebuilding team. Meneses, a true “Joey Horse” inside and outside the diamond.
