The Little League World Series has provided us with some great highlights in the past, but this home run might top them all.
In action between Rhode Island and Massachusetts, 12-year-old Evan Blake absolutely demolished a baseball left up high by an opposing pitcher. Blake hit the ball so hard, it cleared the scoreboard and left the opposing outfielder just totally accept he had no chance at getting it.

That’s 80 power if I’ve ever seen it. With one swing, Blake just shot up the list of NCAA recruits.
When I was 12, I was lucky to hit a whip-pitched softball past the infield. At 12, this kid is crushing home runs at the top level of baseball he’s allowed in. That’s incredibly impressive.
Note to pitchers facing Blake in the future: Don’t leave a ball hanging unless you never want to see it again.
