Toronto Blue Jays Prospect Gabriel Moreno Rips A Ridiculous Double Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen Before

Meet Gabriel Moreno.

Moreno is a 22-year-old Venezuelan catcher whom the Toronto Blue Jays signed as an international free agent all the way back in 2016. That decision has paid off for the Jays as Moreno has flourished in recent years. He’s currently the organization’s top-ranked prospect according to and ranks as the No. 7 prospect in all of baseball.

The budding star made his Major League debut on June 11 in a 3-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers. He then stayed with the big club, playing 18 games and hitting a very respectable .276 in that time. But Moreno has spent most of his year playing for the team’s Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons.

That’s where he made headline on Wednesday night for hitting the most unique double that you’ll probably ever see. Moreno stepped to the plate with one out and in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Bisons trailing the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, 15-3.

The game was essentially over, but Moreno was still swinging for the fences. He hammered a 2-0 pitch deep to left field, and then this happened.

The ball, which Moreno absolutely smoked at 111 miles per hour off the bat, lodged in the left field wall. But it didn’t lodge under the wall, or in a crack in the wall. No, Moreno literally broke the padding on the left field wall with his absolute screamer of a line drive.

Baseball fans couldn’t believe what they had just seen.

Getting a ball literally lodged in the padding is something you see on TV shows about superheroes or aliens that play sports. It’s not supposed to happen in real life.

Moreno appears to have some serious, serious power.
