Offense has been the story of the season for the Cincinnati Reds in 2020. They lead the majors in runs per game (7.33) and are tied for the MLB lead with 16 home runs.

That impressive firepower is also reflected in their minor league system.

Prospect Austin Hendrick hammered an absurd 460-foot home run in training camp this weekend. The ball carried into the parking lot, shattering a car window in the process.

Hendrick was selected 12th overall in the 2020 MLB Draft, as one of the top high school prospects in the country.

Reds fans haven't had a chance to see Hendrick in live game action yet, but it looks like he'll have no trouble fitting in with an organization that is clearly emphasizing power.
