This Little Leaguer flashed some big league power with a car-smashing home run

Saturday's Little League World Series action in South Williamsport featured an International elimination game between Mexico and Italy, with Mexico getting out to a quick 5-0 start.
In the top of the second, Andre Garza stepped up to the plate and crushed a 70-mph pitch the other way for a homer that landed far beyond the wall in right field, crashing into a parked car on its way down

That's quite a poke, reminiscent of the time-honored Spring Training tradition of sluggers denting cars with dingers that sail well past the confines of the ballpark. An impressive job by young Garza, for sure. And one that the Cespedes Family BBQ set out to investigate ... view the clip atop this post to check out their findings.
