Pitching to Cano, by the way, is his dad. The broadcast focuses on how good a shape he is in. And he does appear to be in good shape, for an old man. But (A) he is thankfully not naked, so we can't be sure, and (B) the subsequent suggestion that Cano's dad should be in the derby instead undersells how difficult it is to hit a baseball for a home run. There is a lot more to it than being physically fit!
Cano is swinging now, and Cano is killing it. I can't be the only person who figured that Cano stood a good chance of sucking a lot. His average home run this year has traveled 378 feet. All of them have gone to right field, and only one has been longer than 414. But here he is, and he's mashing. He's hit a bunch well beyond 400, and he annihilated one 472 feet to dead center. A good show from a surprising source. Maybe they should invite unusual selections every year. That way nobody can disappoint, and all can only meet or surpass!
Cano's first round ends with eight home runs. Matt Holliday should probably just stop playing baseball.
