Don’t watch the video if you don’t want to see a one-man wrecking crew destroying the University of Louisville in an 8-5 loss. The video is here only in case he becomes the next Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds or whoever.
The culprit is Jeremy Baltz, a 45th-round draft pick by the New York Yankees in last year’s draft, hammering four home runs off three Louisville pitchers in five at-bats while driving in seven runs. He’s only a freshman, but he’s a candidate for Big East Player of the Year.
This was home run number four in the ninth inning (with brief commentary by the observer):
Louisville again lost out on an opportunity to move into first place. Connecticut dropped a 12-1 decision to South Florida in Tampa. With the loss, the Cards fall to third place behind Pittsburgh, which defeated Cincinnati 12-2. St. John’s is only one game behind Louisville in fourth place.
