13-year-old Georgia little leaguer Jayce Blalock went viral when he hit a 370-foot bomb in a recent Little League World Series game into a row of trees behind the outfield fence. After the mammoth shot, many wondered if Blalock could hit one out of a big league park.
Yesterday, Blalock was invited by the Braves to take some batting practice at SunTrust Park, and confirmed he already has major league power by launching a monster shot off the upper deck facade.
13? His mom must carry around copies of his birth certificate by the hundreds. This is impressive.
