Michael Young 2011 Hitting Spray at Arlington

Michael Young has to be one of my favorite hitters right now, and you can see why above. There's simply not a part of the field* that escapes the lethal combination of place hitting and quality speed. Look closely down the 3rd base line and notice that he's running out dribblers, or notice the doubles upon doubles he's getting at basically every gap. Most telling are his home runs while in Arlington, where it looks like he's spaced them out with an Architectual Digest eye. Just outstanding!

*Hit location data is from katron; counting stats are from b-ref. Curved lines are for effect and do not show actual path of the ball, and ending location is based on where the ball is fielded, not necessarily where it landed.
