This tape-measure home run in the Little League World Series regionals is everything
We'd be surprised if you've ever seen a 13-year-old hit a ball this far before
It's August, which means the Little League World Series is getting set to kick off. As a primer, there was an amazingly colossal home run in the southeast regional elimination game.
The best part is that on the broadcast, they were just talking about whether this fine young man could hit the ball all the way into the trees.
Spoiler: He did.
That was Jayce Blalock with a grand slam. Hoo boy, was that thing destroyed.
Blalock's Georgia team (Peachtree City National Little League) would roll to a 14-2 victory over South Carolina and moves to 2-1 in the pool. Perhaps they keep winning and we see Blalock lighting up pitching in Williamsport later this month.
Here is a preview of what's on the line Tuesday
Jerry Dipoto will have his hands full
Otani is said to be coming over this offseason, though nothing has been made official yet
What do the Mets need to do to get back to the postseason next year? Well, a lot
This is a two-man race coming down the stretch. Who should win?
