450 foot homer? I wonder what the odds on that were?

He's the best baseball athlete humanity has ever seen.

Thought that was his job.

How come it keeps making the news?

Straight from USA Today? 450ft? In metres please.

Baseball dimensions are measured in feet, from the bases to the numbers on the outfield walls

It won't make sense to use meters

Maybe because people will read about it? Journalists have to make a living somehow.

Best athlete ever? That's a question mark. Best baseball player? That's a probable, but not a certainly.

Best baseball player this year and last. That's a no-doubter.

He currently leads the majors (both leagues) in batting (.364), hits (36), doubles (11), and extra base hits (18).

Last year his pitching, while it lasted, was superb. He lead the AL in home runs (44) despite missing a month of play.

Most any news about him is worth reading about.

The man is a beast. Hardest hit ball in mlb this year. Seems the pitcher didn’t get the memo about leaving a ball belt-high over the plate.

Next time apply postage and just mail the ball. It will save time.
