The Giants are honoring the all-time home run king on Saturday as they retire Barry Bonds' No. 25 jersey. Bonds bashed 762 home runs in his 22-year career, but it looks like he finally has some competition.
Meet Alfred Delia, better known as 'Big Al.'
Delia is the new social media star we all need. Appearing in an ESPN introduction video, the Middletown Little Leaguer from New Jersey says, "Hi, my name's Alfred Delia. At home they call me 'Big Al,' and I hit dingers.''
Hell yeah, Big Al.
And Big Al does indeed hit dingers. Here's him rounding the bases after another glorious dinger.
Middletown lost 11-1 on Friday, putting an end to their season. Before it ended though, Big Al showed off his dances moves, too.
San Francisco Giants
Going into Saturday's slate of games, the Giants have only hit 107 home runs as a team. That ranks them tied for 25th in baseball. The Giants' home run leader, Brandon Belt, has only hit 14 long balls this season.
There's one right answer to end the Giants' power brought -- bring in Big Al. Let's make it happen, Bobby Evans.
