Baseball prospect goes viral with trick shot YouTube video
All of us here at NewFlask.com are currently sober enough to realize that the spring season is upon us. And with that, sprouts the beginning of a new baseball season – America’s pastime – the great sport that infuses bats, balls and beer.
Major League Baseball is currently two weeks deep into spring training, a beautiful time of the year when young, aspiring ball players vie for the attention of big league scouts any way they can.
In the world of sports, trick shots are nothing new. Putting together an edited series of trick shots and posting them on YouTube — not new either. But something that is refreshing, is a 24-year-old baseball prospect, who is currently on the roster of the San Diego Padres Single-A minor league organization, who goes the extra mile to put together a very impressive video showcasing his unique accuracy and power with a baseball bat.
The man of the hour is Connor Powers. His video has finally gone viral after sending numerous Tweets to anyone that would take the time to watch. We noticed, Conor. Well done!
