Last night was just about perfect. With no major league games on the schedule, the baseball World had its full attention on the Minor Leagues, and the Cubs’ kids put on quite the show.
Of course Javier Baez was involved, he hit an absolute monster shot.
Kris Bryant went deep earlier in the same game, pure power.
Jorge Soler, who has assaulted Southern League pitching also went deep last night, I’m pretty sure that’s why the game wasn’t televised, MILB didn’t want kids watching that massacre. Addison Russell also smacked a home run, are you sensing a theme here? Christian Villanueva went deep for the Smokies as well, everybody freak out!
Not to be undone, down in Daytona, Dan Vogelbach also crushed a home run. So if you have lost count, let’s recap!
I’m sure there will be continued exciting nights at the minor league level, and soon enough this kind of excitement will be at the major league level. I can’t wait.
