I want to start off by saying IT'S OFFICIALLY COUNTDOWN TO BASEBALL SEASON. Pitchers and catchers report in like 45 hours, football is sadly over, but it's almost spring. We've got NBA going on, Hockey in full swing, March Madness in a few weeks, but baby baseball is close.
That being said, Ken Griffey Jr in a White Sox uniform is gross. Ken Griffey Jr going upper deck Metrodome is not gross. His gorgeous swing launched this ball wayyyyyyy wayyyyy up there. This has to be one of the farthest hit balls from Ken, this was absolutely tanked. I wrote a few weeks back that any home run hit in the old place in Minnesota looks like a bomb, this really was a bomb.
We really got a great pitcher reaction too, sneaky my favorite part of home runs. The pitcher always seem to know right off the bat if it's gone or not, this pitcher knew. Just look at his reaction.
Has to be a terrible feeling knowing the leather you threw is going to end up 450 feet away. Not as bad as being labeled an offensive genius and your team only scoring 3 points in the biggest game of the season, but close.
