Little League Pitcher Throws Curveball, Fools Batter (VIDEO)

A young pitcher in the Little League World Series caught a batter off-guard when he tossed a wicked breaking ball during a game between Panama and Puerto Rico on Thursday.

Panama's Jean Mar Sanchez was startled when he watched a curveball come flying over the plate from Braulio Flores. Sanchez quickly got out of the way and ended up falling backwards.

Panama won the game 9-4.
