This shot might have been out of most big league parks

There's something about the Little League World Series that gets baseball fans of all ages excited. Maybe it's just seeing kids around their ages get a moment in the spotlight, or maybe it's just reminiscing about playing baseball when they were kids. Regardless of why we love the Little League World Series, the games are underway and we may already have our top play.

During the Southeast Regional Elimination Game, Georgia's 13-year-old first baseman Jayce Blalock stepped to the plate with the bases juiced... and... well.... watch for yourself.

Maybe the best part of that moonshot? The announcers saying how the Georgia coaches believed Blalock could send a ball into the trees just seconds before the young man proved that to be true.

As for how far that ball actually went, well, no one is really sure. What we have been able to find out is that the field dimensions have the walls at about 200 feet out, and with a quick glance we can see that those trees are at least another 100 feet, if not further, beyond the outfield wall. Some are saying it was in the range of 350 to 375 feet. It those estimates are true, this kid would have easily gone yard down the left field in every single MLB stadium (except maybe Wrigley, depending on wind).

By the way, Blalock's Peachtree City National Little League team took that game 41 to 2 over South Carolina.
