Braves baseball keeps getting more and more exciting. Last season it was Freddie Freeman in the Home Run Derby for Atlanta, and now it is young phenom Ronald Acuna Jr.:

It will certainly be exciting to see Acuna in a different element. We have seen him hit some monster homers, including one that had the highest arc since the inception of StatCast. He is amongst the leaders in the league for average home run distance.
The field will be full of talent. Acuna will face off against the likes of Christian Yelich, Josh Bell, Carlos Santana, and talented rookies Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Pete Alonso.
