Mike Trout’s Swing Is A Beautiful Thing
This is Mike Trout’s three-run home run off of Felix Rodriguez last night.
The pitch: A 3-2 changeup.
The swing: Freaking gorgeous.
The velocity off the bat: 106.8 mph
The elevation angle: 21.9º (most home runs are hit at a 25-to-45º elev. angle)
The distance: 397 feet
The verdict: That’s an absolute seed.
