Watch: Schwarber Goes Yard in Return to Arizona
First things first: No, that is not Aaron Judge on the mound for the Diamondbacks. Though he’s listed at only 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, Taijuan Walker looks like a monster out there. Even so, he was no match for the power of War Bear, who was making his triumphant return to the scene of his regular-season-ending knee injury last year.
Then-Diamondback Jean Segura ended up with an inside-the-park home run on that play, after which the home team immediately put the ball up for auction. Which was totally cool and not at all weird and perhaps a bit tasteless. Unwilling to bust it all the way around the bases. Schwarber just drove the ball over the wall and trotted.
