Trea Turner treated his old high school's baseball team to a huge Spring Training home run

Before he was the star shortstop for the Nationals, Trea Turner was just another talented high school baseball player in the state of Florida -- a standout at Park Vista Community High School, to be exact. Park Vista is in Boynton Beach, not too far a drive from the Nationals Spring Training complex in West Palm Beach. On Wednesday, the current Park Vista baseball team paid a visit to see its star alumnus in action:
