13 year old hits 461 ft HR

Postby OleMissCub » Sat May 07, 2016 3:56 pm

with his back foot completely off the ground. Hit 35 HR in the final round. Start at about 11 mins for the HR. Swing reminds me of Dante Bichette.

The lack of a bat flip game is problematic.

According to the scouts I've talked to, that's something that can be developed over time.

I remember when we first heard of Bryce Harper it was like "This 15 year old is hitting 500 foot home runs!!" and I was like, well, thats cool and all but can he actually play baseball?

So this dude is the next Kyle Schwarber, clearly

Yah, I remember when that video was being passed around. For all the hype that surrounded him when he was 15 years old, by god did he ever pan out.
