Aaron Judge might be getting put on notice by this 13 years old. Little Leaguer Jayce Blalock had the opportunity to take batting practice before Braves took on Mariners Tuesday night and he made the most of it. The 13 years old drilled a ball off the facing of second deck in left field at SunTrust Park, which is about 400 feet away. Blalock said it took him about a dozen attempts to drill a baseball out of the park, but eventually he was able to get a hold of one. “It feels good. It was a good experience. I came out and hit it. It went out of the Braves field, so that was good” Blalock said. The Little Leaguer told he wants to play first or third base for the Braves or Dodgers someday. With that kind of power, he could have a shot even though he is only going into eighth grade. Blalock went viral when he drilled a 375 foot home run into trees during a Little League game while playing for the Peachtree City National Little League team. His team did not make it to Little League World Series, but the young slugger did turn heads with the hit.
“They said he could hit it into the trees …”
