Little League Player Shuts Down ESPN Anchor Questioning His Size

He may be only 5 feet tall "with his spikes on," but there's power in his game. And oh, what an explosive power it is.

So says Presley Smith, a player in the Little League World Series who hails from Pearland, Texas. When asked by ESPN's Jay Crawford if he "had the ability to go deep," given his diminutive stature, Smith replied thus: "I know I do, because I'm 5-foot tall of pure dynamite."

"[With] these muscles right here," Smith added, motioning to his biceps as Crawford stifled his giggles, "I'm pretty sure I can -- I just got to get a good connection with the ball."

WATCH the Little League player's delightful answer, above.
