Watch: Taijuan Walker Obliterates 455-Foot Home Run
Taijuan Walker is a pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks who, in his four-year career has never hit a home run. Adding to the story, he became a father for the first time last week and this is his first game since.
Well, tonight he got another first. In the bottom of the 5th inning he obliterated a 455-foot bomb with an exit velocity of 110 mph. Pretty incredible.
Look again. That’s not the No. 99 you’re used to … #PitchersWhoRake pic.twitter.com/FjLZvosdiN
