Imagine going to the ballpark and sitting 80 rows away from the field and still catching a home run ball? Yikes.
At the beginning of May, I wrote a blog in which the first sentence was, “Nomar Mazara — remember the name.” This is why. Nomar Mazara has one of the sweetest swings in baseball right now. I mean, look at that thing. It’s smooth, compact and you’d never be able to tell that he hit a ball almost 500 feet just by looking at the swing. It’s not violent. It’s just a thing of beauty. By the way, the kid’s only 21 years old. He’s been legally allowed to have a beer for less than a month, and he’s already smashing near-500 foot homers. Impressive as hell.
