VIDEO: Giancarlo Stanton destroys a baseball
Giancarlo Stanton homered in Monday spring training action, but the word "homered" doesn't do justice to how hard he hit the ball.
The victim: Rawlings Baseball.
The charge: Assault with a deadly weapon.
We know Stanton is as powerful as anyone in baseball, so it's not surprising when he absolutely obliterates a pitch. But just because it's unsurprising doesn't mean it's not fun. Rock on, Mr. Stanton.
