      The game will be held Sunday, July 7 at 7 p.m. ET ​​​​​​​ on MLB Network.

                No doubt that was a no doubter.

                Sam got his first hit, RBI, and home run all in one swing. It wasn’t a wall-scraper either. Something hit that far needs a flight attendant and an in-flight movie.

                    Got all of that one. One thing about playing for the Rockies the ball does travel well at home.

                  Hopefully, Sam's dad was one of his family members celebrating in the stands. Sam's dad is battling Lou Gehrig's disease.

                  Slam Hill-Yard! I like it.

                  • Sam busted another one last night, this one to the opposite field with a man aboard. Two starts. Two bombs.

                      That didn't travel nearly as far as #1 did but it may have been even more impressive. #1 was a pitch on the inner half right in his wheelhouse. This was on a pitch on the outer half that was cutting away from him. Terrific stuff.

                      Top MLB Prospects for 2020

                      https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/t...-young-talent/

                      42. Alec Bohm, 3B, Phillies


                      When Alec Bohm was drafted third overall in 2018, he tied Braden Looper for the distinction of being the third-highest selected player from Wichita State University. (Joe Carter and Darren Dreifort each went second in their draft years.) Believe it or not, the most successful Shocker has been Casey Blake, who accumulated 25 Wins Above Replacement for his career. Blake played in parts of 13 big-league seasons, seeing most of his action at third base with some corner outfield and first base mixed in. It's unclear if Bohm will follow in Blake's cleatprints, but it's at minimum it's possible he ends up moving off third base over the next couple years. The Phillies tasked him with playing 24 games at first base during the minor-league season, and they've continued to crosstrain him there as part of his stint in the Arizona Fall League. Wherever Bohm ends up, this season seemed like a step in the right direction at the plate. In the past he prioritized contact to the point where he didn't seem to make the most of his large frame (he's listed at 6-foot-5 and more than 220 pounds). For reference, he went without a homer in his first 158 professional plate appearances. He showed far more power in 2019, homering 21 times and posting a .213 ISO. That's a promising sign -- and one accompanied by a favorable shift in batted-ball tendencies. If Bohm keeps it up, he could be batting in the middle of the Phillies' order -- and playing some position -- as soon as late next season.
