Madison Bumgarner Launches Moonshot Home Runs in Pregame
Yesterday Bumgarner decided to work on that famous home run swing of his in the pre game batting practice. He also decided to rake one ball into the upper deck, which according to the groundskeepers at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, has only been done by Nelson Cruz in the past. Bumgarner went on to state that he wanted the opportunity to participate in the Home Run Derby this year. Nelson Cruz took part in the 2009 Home Run Derby where he was defeated by Prince Fielder in the final round 6-5. Coincidence? Not a chance. Bumgarner is a Dude and a half, an absolute brute of a farm boy. All those years of chopping down trees and raking fields have prepared him for this moment more than any other competitor. His stamina is incredible as proven when he pitched five innings on two days rest to win the 2014 World Series. If this guy gets the green light to swing in this year's Derby, you already know I'm putting ALL of my money on him to win it.
Oh I may have forgotten to mention he also has the same at bat to home run ratio as All-Star Mike Trout.
