Default vid of Nelson Rodriguez hitting bombs, throwing, & running

Nelson Rodriguez - New York on Vimeo

If you haven't seen this, check out the swing on Nelson Rodriguez, AND his laser throws to second (he's a catcher). Pretty fast runner, too, for a big guy. I think he was 17 in this video and he hit one homer 483 ft.

I think my blue auto /99 will one day be worth a lot more than the $40/dlvd I'm asking right now.

I also have a ref of his if anyone's interested, and 3 USA chrome and 8 USA base.

Enjoy the vid. Some other good hitters on there. Delmonico looks powerful too.

"I coached Manny Ramirez in high school and Nelson is every bit as good a hitter as Manny was at the same age. Nelson hit a ball in Minute Maid Park in Houston that is still traveling, it hit the light pole and would have left the stadium. He also hit a tape measure shot in Mexico with Team USA that went all the way to Venezuela. Nelson is also the most humble sweet kid you will ever meet, a big bright future is ahead of him and I can’t wait to be part of it…"

Looks like a good case to me. Wait a couple years on that gold Nelson. I wouldn't move it now....just my 2-cents.

Thanks for the video BTW. I do plan on holding this one for a while, unlike flipping most of my prospects too soon.

he might have been 16. Just saw on the vid, he was born 6/12/1994, so he just turned 17 last month, so most likely was 16 during that video. maybe 15? not sure when the video was taken. that would be one BIG 15 year old though.

This is a hobby thread Wilson, hence the video of a prospect and a couple of his cards. Sorry you are unable to see the purpose of sharing the hobby with others. You should try to start a hobby thread yourself rather than trolling around as you do leaving worthless comments. Moreover, since you have never had a positive comment to leave on any thread I've ever posted, do me a huge favor and stay off my threads. Got it? If you experience some brain maturation and character development and can find positive and beneficial things to say, by all means, come back and join the hobby fun. But if you can't, please stay off my threads. Too bad there has to always be some small handful of malcontent misfits roaming around trying to stir up problems. You trolls should be booted off the boards permanently.

I can't wait until he's drafted and people then find out that he's actually 20 years old

his birthday is listed as June, 1994, in the Baseball America Power Showcase. Are you saying that's false? If so, why?
