Miguel Sano attempts to blast baseball through Earth's atmosphere, hits Rays' catwalk instead
The power of Miguel Sano has been well-documented since his callup this season. Just two weeks ago, he attempted to hit one into the clouds -- bringing forth torrents of rain from the Minnesota sky. And during Thursday's Twins-Rays game, the 22-year-old unleashed another momentous blast (just listen to the crack of the bat in the above video). It looked as if it would've torn a hole through the dome/atmosphere, but luckily for Rays fans, the ball knocked off the B-ring catwalk for an RBI double.
If not for the catwalk, Statcast had the would've-been-homer going an estimated 409 feet with an exit velocity of 111 mph. Stadium warnings were posted when appropriate for the rest of the game:
** A Sano Warning has been issued ** Due up 2nd this inning. Seek shelter and avoid catwalks.— Sano Alerts (@SanoAlerts) August 28, 2015
