“Holy s*** this reminded me of the steroid era that swing looked so effortless” “In terms of power hitters today, C.J. Cron belongs on a Top 5 list of the most underrated”

Colorado Rockies first baseman CJ Cron is making his mark as MLB’s most underrated power hitter. He just took the lead in the National League home run with his 12th home run of the season. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts is the only other player in the National League to field the same number.

To say he did it in style would be an understatement as the pitch wasn’t one we’d normally see sent 427 feet over the left field wall.

Video of the thing was posted by Talkin’ Baseball via a tweet.

CJ Cron is now tied with Mookie Betts for the NL lead in homers at 12!

That ball was shot into the stratosphere, and based on this tweet from the automated home run tracking Twitter account, it was an absolute doubt.

Some fans are reluctant to engage Mookie Betts and CJ Cron in the same conversation as this user.

@TalkinBaseball_ Let’s not mention Cron & Mookie together like they’re on the same level.

This downtrodden Pittsburgh Pirates fan blames himself for giving up the home run.

It’s actually my fault for letting pirate baseball so early in my day.

This Colorado Rockies fan was so excited to celebrate and enter the cron zone one more time.

We’ve been taken to the cron zone! Number 12 for CJ Cron and it’s a much needed home run down the road! #rockies

This fan represents the majority who are still confused as to how the Colorado Rockies bat sent this one over the fence.

“That ball is at his feet…gosh” – @Young Adobo

The home race in the NL is expected to be held throughout the season. Don’t be surprised if at some point you see CJ Cron’s name at the top of the list.
