Acuña can’t stop hitting homers and it’s something fans love to see. You know what else they’ll enjoy, seeing one of the baseballs look totally different after the slugger smashed it out of the park.

Ronald Acuña Jr. is a man on a tear and he can’t stop hitting homers
As you can see in the photo above, an Acuña home-run ball isn’t the same as others. You can barely tell that thing is even a baseball anymore. As for Acuña, he really has been sensational for the Braves early on in 2021.
As of this writing, he’s hitting .442 with seven homers and 14 RBI through the team’s first 13 games of the year. Those stats are nothing short of out of this world, as Acuña is looking like an MVP contender.
Unfortunately for Atlanta, the team hasn’t been able to get going in the way fans were hoping for. The team is currently 5-8 on the season and in fourth place of the NL East standings. With that being said, it’s still incredibly early and Atlanta has all of the tools to quickly turn things around and get back in the pennant hunt.
All eyes will be on Acuña the rest of the campaign. He’s obviously not going to be able to keep up with this pace, but don’t be surprised to see him finish with some head-turning numbers.
