Japanese pitcher Kotaro Kiyomiya drills Curacao player at Little League World Series (Video)

With the Little League World Series starting today, one of the stories that came to the forefront was the size of Japanese player, Kotaro Kiyomiya.

Kotaro is only 13-years-old but stands over 6 feet tall and weighs over 200 pounds. He is also a pitcher for the Japanese squad.

During an opening round match against Curacao, Kotaro accidentally hit Curacao's Ceddanne Rafaela with a pitch right in the batting helmet:

For those of you wondering how fast that pitch was going if it was thrown in Major League Baseball, it was 99 miles per hour.
