Diamondbacks prospect blasts 527 foot homer off Missions pitcher
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Amarillo Sod Poodles infielder Leandro Cedeno blasted a home run 527 feet against the San Antonio Missions Saturday night.
We’re still not sure if this ball ever landed.
Nolan Watson threw a high 93 mile per hour fastball in a 3-0 count in the bottom of the 5th to Cedeno — only for it to be sent straight out to center-left field — tying the game at 5.
