At this pace, 307 home runs every 36 minutes, about 3 hours per game, times 162 games per year... that's roughly 243,000 home runs per year. New Twins record!

The 2019 baseball was a travesty. But I watched every single one of those dingers and found it to be very enjoyable. I didn't keep track of first row landings but I think even with a normal baseball we'd have hit 250.

The 2019 baseball was a travesty. But I watched every single one of those dingers and found it to be very enjoyable. I didn't keep track of first row landings but I think even with a normal baseball we'd have hit 250.

I stopped about half-way through, but after reading your comment I went back and finished the video. A few things I noticed:

 

- Most of the homers were really walloped, not close to the fence. With a "normal" ball like in 2018, you could subtract maybe ten percent, tops. 

- Garver's swing most resembles Cruz's. That guy will hit tons of homers.

- Rosario is a legit home run hitter.

- Kepler's swing reminds me a little of Justin Morneau's.

- Cron could really drill line drives.

- Schoop had immense power, but only in streaks.

- Sano just flips his wrists, ball goes 380.

- Cruz finishes beautifully on balance.

- Gonzalez has explosive power on both sides.

- So does Polanco.

- Buxton hits fewer home runs, but seems to reach the 3rd deck with ease. 

- Arraez is going to surprise people with his power in a couple years.

 

This Twins team will continue to pile up home runs for the foreseeable future. Only viral pandemics can prevent it.

That was a great way to spend 36+ minutes. Now I’m going to spend the next 36 minutes watching from 32:42-32:53 over and over.

Almost as much fun as watching it live last season.

I experienced a sense of deja vu on this one, sort of like it had been ranked #1 in another Tom video or something.

Did anyone keep track?

Make sure there were indeed 307, no more, no less?

I might count 'em tonight if i don't find somethin' better to do...
