WARNER ROBINS, Ga. – The team from Peachtree City is just two wins away from a trip to Williamsport and the Little League World Series.
But it’s video of one of the players hitting a monster homerun that has the entire baseball world buzzing.
Jayce Blalock, who stars on the Peachtree City National LL team, hit a grand slam during Sunday’s 14-2 victory that cleared the fence by what looked like a mile.
Video of the 13-year-old’s grand slam — estimated by announcers as 375 feet — posted on Little League’s official Facebook page has been viewed more than 1 million times!
If Peachtree City National LL wins Monday and Tuesday, they’re headed to Williamsport. And you can imagine all eyes will be on Blalock and his power bat.
