Meet Ariel Antigua

He is 5 years old, and can hit an 85 MPH fastball.
In case you didn’t hear me right, he is FIVE years old, and can hit an 85 MPH FASTBALL.
To put this into perspective, I played competitive baseball for 10 years, and I’m pretty sure I’d be dribbling those pitches to the mound if I made contact at all.
To say this kid is a phenom wouldn’t even do it justice. He’s doing the rounds on all kinds of talk shows these days to get the word out. Except, he can’t even be drafted until 2023. Yeah, 13 years from now.
Let’s all see if we can remember his name for that long. Who knows maybe he’ll actually pan out in to the best player of all time. He’s from Jersey and he’s a Mets fan. Why does that make me think the Yankees will do everything in their power to get this kids name on the dotted line as soon as humanly possible.
