Jung-ho Kang Showing Off His Power at Pirate City

Jung-ho Kang Showing Off His Power at Pirate City

Jung-ho Kang has reported to Pirate City, where he is working out and preparing for the start of Spring Training. Yesterday he took a few sessions of batting practice, and friend of the site Joe Sweetnich was kind enough to capture the video below. It’s only batting practice, but the ball looks to be jumping off his bat, and his swing looks very easy.

UPDATE: Here is a closer look from this morning.
