Albert Chen: Prep star Byron Buxton the most talented, intriguing draft prospect

by Blogburger on May 22, 2012

There’s a story about Byron Buxton — you can call him Buck — that has nothing to do with baseball. It has nothing to do with how fast he runs (he might be the fastest prospect since Bo Jackson). It has nothing to do with how hard he can throw a baseball (his fastball has been clocked at 99 miles per hour). It has nothing to do with how far he hits a baseball (he once hit a ball, in an exhibition, that landed on the top row of the leftfield bleachers at Wrigley Field).
