VIDEO: Cody Bellinger Blasting a Home Run in the 2007 Little League World Series is an Incredible Throwback
It's no secret that Cody Bellinger is one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball. He's coming off an NL MVP-winning 2019 campaign that saw him swat 47 home runs while hitting for a .305/.406/.629 slash line.
Big offensive output is nothing new for the 24-year-old star either, as evidenced by this incredible throwback to when he was taking part in the 2007 Little League World Series.
Bellinger was 12 years old in this video, and he was already lighting it up on national TV. His team was already carrying a comfortable 7-4 lead with two outs in the top of the 3rd inning, and he gave them plenty more breathing room with this shot over the left-center field wall.
That massive jersey he was wearing may look like it could still fit him to this day, but the giant sleeves did nothing to hold back his swing as he helped his team make it out of pool play and into the elimination round, where they were ended up being knocked out by the eventual champions.
Baseball fans are just a couple weeks away from getting real games to focus on again, but for now amazing throwbacks like this can really help fill the void.
