Hunter Pence And His Goofy Swing Crush A Ball Into The Upper Deck

Hunter Pence's goofy-ass swing shouldn't work, and yet sometimes, everything in his hitting motion connects, and a baseball visits the upper deck of Chase Field.

The Giants outfielder demolished this pitch from Diamondbacks pitcher Randall Delgado in the sixth inning of last night's game for a 6-4 lead. Pence's kick was on time, his deliberate swing connected, and the ball was toast.


Pence's swing has been humorously analyzed a few times, but regardless of mechanics, he's got a .367 OBP for the season. It's entertaining to see success with unusual methods.
