Frazier’s three-run homer | (video)

I’ve read some complaints about the homer. It’s happened before. It will happen again. Ballparks matter.

Batting average of .651 and more triples than singles. That's a well-struck ball.

Doesn't answer the question of how THAT swing produced a batted ball with that velocity.

95 mph coming in, strong guy, and right part of the park. Its not a normal home run, but not impossible. Playing softball last night we had a guy swing at a pitch that would have hit him - pulled his arms so far in that I didn't there he would get anything behind the swing at all...but still squared it up enough, and was strong enough to muscle it out. Bat swings do not always equal bad results.

Remember, Frazier is the guy that hit a home run without holding the bat.

Bat swings do not always equal bad results.

This is very true and well to remember. It didn't end up mattering but if the Yanks had won 3-2, it would have been akin to losing a basketball game on a 70 foot buzzer beater.

100.5 mph going out, to a decently short part of RF.

Sheeeeeeeit, I've seen someone hit a HR on a check-swing, broken-bat before ...

Juiced ball, get over it.
