David Wright vs. Craig Kimbrel 2013

Originally published February 28, 2014

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're up to speed on the Face of MLB promotion that is pitting legitimate superstar David Wright (3B, NYM) with Oakland infielder Eric Sogard. By no means is this meant to be a knock on Sogard - he's in The Show. It's a true testament to the power of social media, and it will be fun to watch how Major League Baseball handles this.

Today's Daily Dinger is courtesy of a May 2013 encounter between Wright, and Atlanta's hard-throwing (and rich) closer, Craig Kimbrel. I love watching Wright play baseball because he not only plays hard, he plays with excellent fundamentals and balance. This hack is a perfect demonstration of that. Kimbrel's four-seamer is moving hard and Wright gets excellent extension - absolutely drilling this ball. Enjoy...and vote! If you want to. Or not. Lame promotion.
