Luis Robert adds Little League home run to the list of fun things to his highlight reel


Luis Robert keeps doing fun things in the minors this season.

The White Sox outfield prospect roped a triple to the gap in the third inning of Triple-A Charlotte’s game Friday night. The ball looked like a relatively harmless line drive to right-center at first, but it perfectly split the outfielders and went all the way to the wall.

That’s when Robert showed off his speed. He made it to third easily, then when the relay throw was dropped by the Pawtucket Red Sox infielder, Robert went home on the play.

This is a cool play when looking at this version of the highlight, but Julie Brady got the view from the press box and tweeted out a video focusing on Robert rounding the bases. His speed really shows through here.

He slows as he heads to third, then stops on the bag before the third base coach waves him home after seeing the error. Robert made it to third in about 11 seconds and that includes him slowing down as he reached the bag.

That was his second triple with the Knights in his 13th game with the team. He also has four stolen bases. He has shown off his power with five home runs and now 10 extra base hits as well. 

Whenever Robert makes it to the South Side, it sure looks like he will be an exciting player to watch.
