Watch: Little Leaguer crushes home run over scoreboard
The Little League World Series is nearly upon us, and what could get you better in the mood for the summer event in Williamsport, Penn. than a gigantic homer?
During a New England regional game between Rhode Island and Massachusetts on Wednesday, a player for the Pittsfield (Mass.) team named Evan Blake crushed a bomb to center field that went over the scoreboard. His homer was hit so far that the Coventry center fielder didn’t even bother to go back for the ball.
