Few players have as much swagger on the field as Marcus Stroman. He pops and wiggles on the mound, and isn't afraid to show emotion after getting big outs.

Few players have as much swagger on the field as Marcus Stroman. He pops and wiggles on the mound, and isn't afraid to show emotion after getting big outs.

Looks like his little brother, Jayden, is already a step ahead of him. The youngster -- who won't even graduate high school for another five years -- recently got hold of a pitch and drove it out of the park. He punctuated that with a killer bat drop and slow walk into his trot. This is an advanced home run celebration usually reserved strictly for professionals:

This wasn't a one-time thing, either. Jayden did it again the next day. This one was even more impressive given how much air he got under the ball. The catcher practically fell on his back to watch it soar:

Now, compare that swing and trot to Stroman's when he hit his big league homer. Yeah, Jayden's got a step on his big bro already:

Really, the only thing that would make it better was if Jayden was wearing the uniforms that Marcus had designed. These things are one part '90s Marlins uniforms, one part Baseball Furies.
