GIF: Beloved Mike O’Neill Hits Maybe Only Home Run of Season

Cardinals outfield prospect Mike O’Neill has appeared within the author’s Fringe Five column of late neither because of his tremendous raw power nor even his nearly average power. Indeed, as of yesterday, O’Neill had accumulated only one professional home run since being drafted out of USC in 2010.

What he did Friday night, however — in the second game of Double-A Springfield’s double-header against Tulsa — was to hit a home run. And what the present author did after that was to render footage of the home run into animated GIF form such that it might be viewed and enjoyed by no fewer than one other person, and up to as many as seven or eight other people.

Regard, here’s the first half of the home-run sequence, which the author has split into two parts with a view to Maximum Loading Ease.

And here’s the second half:

MO HR 2

In conclusion, the author has continued to fulfill his obligations to his employer by completing this post about beloved Cardinals prospect Mike O’Neill.

He’s a lefty in Springfield. Even with his power, he’s going to send a few more over the fences.
