Well, I think maybe we’re going to remember this Opening Day. Not all Opening Days have a memorable “thing” about them, but this one is that time Javy Baez went deep (at least) twice.
Earlier, Baez somehow took a very good, low, 0-2 pitch out to left, and this time, Baez gets a pitch up in the zone to kick off his at bat against old friend Jesse Chavez, and he just send it out the other way:
Baez is just picking right up where he left off last year, generating hard contact all over the zone and around the edges, too. That was 110.5 mph off the bat and 411 feet the other way. Just a freaking shot.
Obligatory: Baez is now on pace for 324 homers this year.
Also obligatory, having some fun:
Hey Javy – did you see that reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich hit one home run today?
