    Yeah, but that homerun derby is far from the pros (I know he is young). But he was hitting pitches from a machine right down the middle of the plate. They were traveling 100+ mph. I saw one that was 109. AND he was swinging an aluminum bat. "He has faster bat speed than Mark McGwire did in his prime" I would hope swinging a bat that weighs nothing! Have him pick up a wooden bat and see how his bat speed is.

    And he didn't even win that home run derby.

    Still phenomenal, but I dont know if it's LeBron phenomenal, yet.

    Got to see the kid play in a wooden bat tourney. If he keeps his head on straight he is going to get paid very well one day.
