Michigan Little Leaguer nicknamed 'Swag Daddy' stands 6-feet-2

By Jameson Fleming | CBSSports.com Staff

Built with a strike zone the size of a Mack truck, Grosse Pointe, Mich., Little League star Chad Lorkowski stands a mammoth 6-feet-2, weighs 200 pounds and rocks a size-15 shoe.

Remember, he's a Little Leaguer. He's just 12 years old and already 9 inches taller than Astros 2B Jose Altuve.

The best part about young Chad? His nickname.

He's known around Grosse Pointe as "Swag Daddy." Yes, Swag Daddy. Miami U. needs to start recruiting this kid pronto.

Lorkowski mowed down 10 hitters and slugged two home runs to help Michigan advance to the Little League World Series.

Announcers note he's interested in basketball, which may seem to be a better fit for a kid 15 inches taller than the average 12-year-old.

Grosse Pointe rolled through the Great Lakes regional to reach the Little League World Series. The team's first game will be Friday at 3 p.m. ET against California.
