BOOM: Javier Baez Goes Deep to the Opposite Field (VIDEO)

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

Spring Training pro-tip number one: if Javier Baez is at the plate, make sure you’re recording.

Because stuff like this happens:

That was Baez going deep the opposite way today against the Rockies. You can hear the crowd immediately swoon. It took everything in me to remain calm and dispassionate so as not to disrupt the shot.

Then again, this is just Javy bein’ Javy, so what’s there really to get all excited about?
