Watch Nick Castellanos’ monster home run vs. Twins

Castellanos destroyed a baseball to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.

Nicholas Castellanos has always been an aggressive hitter since joining the Detroit Tigers. He has put the ball in play on the first pitch 329 times in his career entering play on Monday, hitting .389 with a .722 slugging average. First pitch swing number 330 came against the Minnesota Twins on Monday evening, and it went a long way.

Yup, that’s Castellanos clearing the center field fence with ease to give the Tigers an early 1-0 lead. He added to his total in the second with an RBI single, proving that baseball can sometimes be an individual sport.
