More BP shock & awe

2

DOB is gushing on, again: "But this … this is something different. The 245-pound Heyward hits them with such ferocity that the ball not only makes a different sound coming off the bat – as Bobby Cox, Tim Hudson and others have noted – but it also whistles past with a different sound when you’re standing between the dugout and first-base line. Seriously, it does. I noticed that yesterday when I was standing over there with my back turned, talking to someone. Heyward hit a ball that sounded like it was dangerously close to me (it wasn’t) and at the same time one of the other hitters in his group shouted something that was guttural, an instinctive sort of response indicating disbelief."
