Wily Mo Peña Still Going Mega-Yard In Japan

Wily Modesto Peña Going Big Fly In Japan
When the Red Sox dealt Bronson Arroyo to the Reds, they got a young slugger in return—Wily Mo Peña. In 157 games for The Carmine Hose, he only hit 16 HRs—but what HRs! We can personally attest to being present for one of them—a vicious line shot into the first-row back wall of the Monster Seats that took about .36 nano-seconds to hit its target. The man could rake. And, now we find out that he's still raking in Japan—for the Orix Buffaloes. He recently launched a 490-foot shot that was stopped from going even further by the fact that it hit a light fixture above the field.
