PING!!!


Wow. That IS fun. It was Delhomme. I just happened to be surfing by ESPN or whatever it was when he was batting. He knocked a bunch over the wall.

It was the NFL Gridiron challenge thing.

Boldin was launching just as well as Delhomme if not better. It was softballs too, not baseballs, so even with metal bats, its a lot harder to hit a softball out of a MLB park than a baseball.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Its hard to hit any ball 400+ feet when the ball is being slow pitched in. 90 mph fast ball would have been going much further though harder to hit.

Tracy McGrady a while ago hit two pretty deep home runs and apparently showed good breaking stuff at the AA Complex of the Braves. (Astros? Phillies? Some NL team.)
