Last season, first baseman Freddie Freeman launched a career-high 38 home runs to help the Atlanta Braves take over the NL East, topping the 30-HR threshold for just the second time in his decade-long career. Freeman is up to 227 career homers so far, and at just 30 years old, I’d say he’s got plenty of time to add – significantly – to that total.
But how is he staying in shape for the upcoming season, now that all games are on hold? By letting his 3.5-year-old son Charlie toss some batting practice in the back yard, of course. But if Charlie wants a future in the big leagues, he’s going to have to do a lot better than this.
What a meatball of a pitch!

Freeman took him DEEP!
Welcome to the big leagues, kid.
