The ball sounded different coming off his bat. His double was an absolute laser.
On a side note, early in the game a line drive down the third base line hit a guy in the stands on the side of head. He was laying down in the lawn section and never saw the ball coming. Ver scary. My family was only about 10 feet away. It shook up my 5 yo intially. The guy was bleeding badly from the head and was very fortunate to have survived considering it came very close to his temple. The paramedics had to take him out on stretcher.
The same thing happened the last time I was there. A ball scorched down the 1st base line right in my direction, I was a bit froze but an older guy about a section or so over took it right smack to the side of his head. Security came out and then moments later paramedics, very scary indeed.
