Spring training games may not matter, but that doesn’t make it any less rewarding to see hot prospects hit insane home runs onto the Port Charlotte Sports Park roof.
You know it's gone when the outfielder doesn't even move @RaysBaseball No. 5 prospect Jake Bauers turned heads with another moonshot, and his teammates loved it: https://t.co/1Z05kyVEIK pic.twitter.com/Tvo0Mr0vp4— MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) March 7, 2018
The ball ended up on the outfield roof, sending the team photographer, and PR guru on a wild hunt for their prize.
This isn’t even the first time Bauers has sent the team running after his dingers. Almost exactly a year ago, he pulled a similar stunt.
This is the stuff spring training dreams are made of: a prospect showing how great he could be, an exciting home run, and just fun baseball.
