Javier Baez doin’ Javier Baez things today.

One pitch, one (devastating) swing, one very long opposite field homer:

I love how early Baez starts preparing for his swing. The leg raises, and his entire posture is like, “Don’t you dare throw this ball in the zone. Don’t you do it. Don’t do it … I TOLD YOU NOT TO THROW IT IN THE ZONE!”

Baez also made a nice over-the-shoulder running catch early in the game, too. He’s good at this thing.
