Pete Crow-Armstrong launches mammoth home run after being thrown at twice earlier in at-bat

It hasn't even been a week since Pete Crow-Armstrong was sent back to Triple-A Iowa, and the 22-year-old phenom seems to have picked up right where he left off.

Facing a 10-year MLB veteran in Wily Peralta, PCA was dealt two pitches that nearly hit him during his 4th inning at-bat, including a 91 mile-per-hour offering that nearly missed hitting Crow-Armstrong in the head.

After warnings were issued to both dugouts, Crow-Armstrong showed he wasn't the slightest bit fazed by having to duck just moments earlier.

In 23 games with the I-Cubs in 2024, PCA is hitting .265/.308/.551 with five home runs and eight stolen bases, in addition to nine doubles and two triples.

With 23 games at the big league level in 2024 as well, Crow-Armstrong is destined to find himself back at Wrigley Field in the near future.
