The headline is not misleading, my friends. Reds utility man Todd Frazier stepped up to the plate today against geriatric punch line Jamie Moyer of the Colorado Rockies and literally threw his bat at one of Moyer’s patented 72 MPH changeups.
And then this happened.
The ball went about 370 feet into the leftfield bleachers at Great American Ballpark for a home run. From that angle, it looks like it could have been a broken bat or that Frazier perhaps let go of the bat after making contact. Well, you’d be wrong in those assumptions, fair reader.
Here’s the slow motion view from the side.
I’m not sure how it’s physically possible, but apparently it is.
