Jayce Blalock is a 13-year-old playing for Peachtree City National Little League (Ga.) and hoping to make it to Williamsport. He’s a big teenager and strikes fear into opposing pitchers.
A pitcher from South Carolina threw him a strike with the bases loaded Sunday. It proved a terrible idea as Blalock blasted it to the treeline. Initial estimates of the tape-measure home run were in the 375-foot range which is just absurd.
“They said he could hit it into the trees …”

I think we may have found the next Big Papi.
