On Friday, we posted a spectacular video of Justin Upton launching a homer over the scoreboard at Champion Stadium in Orlando. Well, last night in Goodyear, Arizona, Mark Reynolds of the Indians showed the world that he can do it too.
In the sixth inning of the Indians-Diamondbacks game on Friday night, Reynolds took a belt-high fastball from Arizona reliever David Hernandez and absolutely destroyed it, hitting the pitch over the left field scoreboard at Goodyear Stadium.
Arizona would hang on to win the game 7-5, but congratulations, Indians fans: you've got an actual power threat in the lineup in 2013. The Tribe didn't have a 20 homer man last year, and haven't had a player hit 30 in a season since Grady Sizemore in 2008.
