Dave and Chuck the Freak

This video has been racking up the hits on Instagram.  It’s a dad celebrating like crazy when his young son hits his first home run.  It’s just the two of them practicing at a neighborhood ball field, and the dad is doing the pitching.

But the kid puts a serious charge into the ball, launching it over the 120-foot marker.  The dad is a former independent league player, so he’s pretty stoked that he may have a future power hitter in the family.
