BONUS CONTENT: More Chris Davis Because WHOA

This is Chris Davis' three-run bomb off of Jeremy Hellickson on April 3rd.

The pitch: A 3-2, 91 mph fastball ~2-3” off the plate.

The swing: Not as buttery smooth as usual. He loses his front side early, but keeps his hands back, and then … 

 The velocity off the bat: 108.4 mph

The elevation angle: 23.4º

The distance (horizontally): 422 feet. Oppo. With a sold out front side. 

The verdict: Chris Davis has superhuman strength and traps like an ox and the dreamiest eyes and he launches balls a long way to the opposite field even when he guesses wrong and it makes the front of our pants feel funny.

    I can’t believe this is #weirdmeat. LOOK AT THE WHERE THE BALL IS WHEN IT HITS THE BAT! Damn that’s some power.
