Watch: Nico Hoerner Hits Inside-the-Park Home Run

So, uh, I’m starting to think maybe Nico Hoerner has Double-A pitching figured out. The Cubs’ top pick in last year’s draft has done nothing but impress the hell out of everyone in the organization with his makeup and approach, and he seems to be getting better with each step.

Watch him turn on the jets to round the bases on a liner down the third base line that sure didn’t look like ITTPHR material off the bat. Wow.

Ed. note: There’s actual video embed code below, but there have been issues with MiLB content due a battle over usage rights with MLB and MLBAM. An agreement has been reached, but there are apparently still some kinks to be ironed out. So the video should eventually be available below, but there’s also a link just after the black white space.

Imagine overseeing a sport that is trying to attract young consumers and then dicking around with the ability to share video content featuring exciting young players via social media and blogs like this. Baseball just can’t get out of its own damn way.
