    Re: Hardest hitters?

    As much of a jerk as he was, Albert Belle hit some absolute monster home runs.

    When I was a kid watching the Royals play, Bo Jackson always amazed me at how hard he hit it. Currently, Matt Holliday hits some of the hardest balls you will see.

    Here, Holliday hits the longest HR in Busch Stadium III history:

Reds had hellacious catching with their starters and Pav as the backup though.
    Nice to read this. My dad was a Don Pavletich fan. I was a Johnny Edwards fan so we always debated their merits.

    My dad died in 1994. I still miss him. Nice that someone remembers his favorite player. Thanks.

    Pay attention to the open sky
