Amazing high school phenom!

 

http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1156215/index.htm 

 

This is a long story, so to break it down a bit, it's about a 16 year high school sophomore phenom from Las Vegas.  He hits bombs over 500 feet, with one being 570 feet.  His pitches have been clocked as much as 96 mph.  He's scored runs on passed balls from second base.

He's done all of that, and he's a catcher!  It's said he throws would be base stealers out from his knees and once, while playing with a traveling team 2-3 years older than him, in one day, he went 12-12 with 11 homeruns and a double.

It's amazing what this kid has done.  He's even trying to get out of highschool early and join a Junior College so he can be eligible for next years draft.

Also, the article said he's hit the longest homerun ever at Tropicana field while playing in some tournament in front of scouts

Just unbelievable!!
