"Boy, [Hopper] can hit that ball hard. He's a strong little dude," Baker said. "The ball made a loud sound. I use my ears a lot. I can tell what kind of bat speed [he] has by that sound."
Is he being sarcastic? He's talking about a guy who in the past decade has hit 3 homeruns! This sounds like a jock quarterback sarcastically hitting on the ugly girl at lunch. Dusty Baker officially scares me.
