Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton possesses some rare raw power. He showed it off in batting practice Sunday in San Francisco when he hit a ball OUT of AT&T Park – no easy feat. The ball bounced one time near the kids’ play area and ended up in the players’ parking lot.

Leaving the yard is nothing new to the 26-year-old Stanton. He has four homers this season and 184 in his career. Last May, he blasted one out of Dodger Stadium during a game.
