Carlos Correa has been having a grand ole’ time with the Puerto Rico team during the 2017 World Baseball Classic. The Puerto Rico team finished Pool D and Pool F play with a perfect 6-0 record and faced The Nederlands in the semifinals with the chance of punching their ticket to the WBC finals.
Puerto Rico fell behind early because of Wladimir Balentien two-run home run in the top of the first inning. But Correa made sure that lead didn’t last long.
Correa rocked a 1-2 curveball from Rick Van Den Hurk well over the left-center field wall to tie the game at 2-2.
Statcast projected the balls exit velocity at 109.5 miles per hour, it’s maximum height was 75. and the projected home run distance was 441 feet.
If you’re more of a visual person, Darwen Willman has you covered with the flight of the ball, and the pitch location.
Probably not the ideal location to Carlos Correa on a 75 MPH curveball... pic.twitter.com/VoFCQvDCFG— Daren Willman (@darenw) March 21, 2017
