This guy is only 16 years old and a sophomore in high school in Las Vegas.  He's already 6'3" 205 lbs and still growing.  Last year as a freshman hit a 570 ft homerun during a game and at a homerun derby at Tropicana field, hit a shot that traveled 502 feet in the video above.  They say he'll be the #1 pick in 2011.

Well, with baseball it's always too early to really know until they've actually been a success at the major league level, but from that video he's on the right track.

Aside from Ken Griffey Jr., that may be the prettiest swing I've ever seen.

Heart Of A Champion.  He looks great.  Pretty Swing.  Unfortunately he is a Catcher so if i was him, i would work on becoming an infielder to ensure a long career.

He does have a nice swing. I would like to see him give the left field wall more attention, he'll eventually have to prove he can spray to all fields.

Can't wait for baseball to start. Not too long til the Mets choke again
