Big Papi Launching Balls with Metal Bat

MLB.com

If kids ever ask why big leaguers don't use metal bats, show them this video. Flat out mammo homeruns. The first one took like five seconds to land and when it did, it nearly made a sound louder than when it was hit. From this angle their trajectory looks like a fighter jet. Gotta love the jams coming from DJ Buchholz too.
