Legend has it that Bernie Sanders' first friend was Shoeless Joe Jackson. He's been dead for over 50 years at this point, but Big Bat Bernie Sanders is still out here absolutely crushing baseballs into orbit. And some of those pitches were coming in with some heat on them. I'd love to see what he'd be able to do with The Rocket on the mound.
But something here just doesn't add up. I mean how can this guy be about a billion years old and still smash dingers with ease? I don't like to get political here on the internet. I'm not trying to go out of my way here to create a campaign controversy or scandal. With that being said...I've been around the block long enough to know that at a certain point when guys start to get get better with age, it can't be natural.
Now you could say that maybe his stance and technique are just so dialed in that he doesn't need as much power behind his swing to send it out of the park. And I'd be willing to accept that argument. It doesn't get much more textbook than this.
What a stroke. And you might notice here that there wasn't a single bat flip to be seen. Big Bat Bernie isn't here to make the game all about himself. He's not out there trying to show up anybody else. He just loves the game and he loves launching balls into a different dimension. But does he love the game a little too much? To the point where he'd use some substances to keep his career going well into his 170's? It's at least worth asking the question, that's all I'm saying. He loves talking to his "fans".
