Baseball: World Baseball Classic-Netherlands at Puerto Rico Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

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.
