Over the weekend, Venezuelan little leaguer Deivis Ordonez became a viral sensation with his unique batting stance during the Little League World Series.
Going up against Mexico today, he brought back the now-famous stance.
During one of his at-bats in today’s elimination game, Ordonez got into a wide, low squat, reducing his strikezone in half.
But despite the reduced range to get a strike, Mexico’s pitcher was still able to get a strike.

Ordonez debuted the stance during Venezuela’s win over Australia this past weekend.
It garnered so much attention and popularity that Cleveland Indians star Yasiel Puig decided to imitate it during an at-bat against the Yankees. Though unlike Ordonez, Puig didn’t actually stay in the stance for the at-bat.

We may get a chance to see Ordonez using the stance again. Venezuela held on to win 8-7 against Mexico and will advance to Game 21 of the International Bracket.
Who knows? Maybe more MLB players will even start imitating him now.
