It’s no secret that when Josh Naylor (2015, Mississauga, Ontario) hits the ball he tends to hit it with emphasis. And he’s been doing that pretty consistently here throughout the week in Jupiter. But, sometimes you have to look beyond the box score. There’s no greater example of that then Naylor’s Sunday afternoon game. Although he took an 0-2, he hit two absolute rocket line drives the resulted in outs, one at 104 mph and one at a tournament best 108 mph. There’s just not disguising the type of bat speed Naylor generates.
