It is important to maintain your balance while you are up on the plate. When you try to hit a round ball against a piece of wood, it's usually very fast and moving around a lot. If you're less than an inch away, you will either miss it completely or hit it hard. You will usually get a Not Top 10 if your feet are too tired to walk.
Unless you are, of course. Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr.
In the fourth inning, a game against The Milwaukee BrewersAcuna fell while swinging on Friday and launched a massive home run into deep center field. Acuna reached 450 feet at an exit velocity 111.7 miles per hour. ESPN Stats and Information reports that Acuna has 28 home runs, with an exit velocity of at least 110 miles per hour since 2019. This makes him the fifth-ranked major league player. Pete Alonso (35), Shohei Ohtani (31), Bryce Harper(30) Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (29) are the other players in front.
It is hard to imagine how far he could have gotten if he had stayed on his feet.
Are you a homer? Have you ever seen someone fall down while they were at it?!
