South Hills’ David Denson, who smacked a 515-foot home run at the Power Showcase Home Run Derby at Marlins Park in December, which was longer than anything Bryce Harper hit at the event before becoming the top pick in the MLB draft, may force softball players to wear helmets if he keeps this up. South Hills assistant softball coach Garrett Fisch tweeted about some of Denson’s homer’s in practice, saying, “All the baseball players kept yelling “heads up” over and over again.” Those are shots to right. I’m wondering if the lefty can go the opposite way and smack one across Cameron to the golf course. Players have (reportedly) knocked it in the streets before, but nobody, not even the Giambi’s, ever reached South Hills country club.
@sgvnsports I’m pretty sure the guy that broke Bryce Harper’s record in MIA just hit a HR at SH just short of our softball fields 2nd base!
