Thomas hits first home run at Memphis

We have been waiting for Big Papi to break out with some power displays and last night he showed that swing with two long balls. In a small park much farther from Boston than Baltimore, Red Sox 44th round draft pick broke through with power of his own. After a two-run triple last night, Thomas hit a towering home run today against UCF in Orlando, his first of the year. His teammates reported the blast went about 400 feet. Thomas said, “I didn’t get to see it but I knew it was gone off the bat.It felt good.” UCF’s announcer said, “That is gone, no doubt about it. A long home run for Thomas,” as the bat rang–not my favorite sound in college baseball. A much better sound was the wood bat’s crack when Thomas hit a long ball off the Green Monster(just above the Covidien sign) on July 2 during the Fenway Classic Game, driving in three runsDSCN0711 (Large) (Small) (WinCE).JPG
