Indians prospect Bradley Zimmer hit a booming homer in front of his very proud grandma
The Indians already boast a rather potent offense, but reinforcements are on the way nonetheless: outfielder Bradley Zimmer, considered the club's No. 1 prospect by MLBPipeline.com, could have an impact sooner rather than later.
"Sooner" might as well have been "Saturday," judging by the display Zimmer put on in Cleveland's Spring Training opener against the Reds.
Before being lifted from the contest, Zimmer went 2-for-3 with five RBIs, three of them coming on this booming, man-that-looks-like-an-easy-swing dinger to left-center field:
... a blast that was definitely appreciated by Zimmer's biggest fan, who just so happened to be at the ballpark for the occasion.
MLB.com's Jordan Bastian caught up with Zimmer after the game to ask about his big day:
And as for his opposite-field power, Zimmer seemed as impressed as the rest of us:
Congratulations, Bradley, on earning some major points with grandma.
