The offensive explosion that sometimes occurs in Cactus League play can make an otherwise long spring training seem more like a home run derby at times. I’d say that’s a good thing because, after all, who doesn’t like to watch their team hit baseballs over the outfield fence against opposing pitchers. NO ONE!
First up, the Blue Hornet (a.k.a., Jason Heyward) hits a 458 foot bomb!
Anthony Rizzo hits a solo blast to right field in the third inning.
Matt Murton hits a solo shot off Cory Rasmus in the top of the ninth inning.
That was fun!
