Let’s all stand back for a minute and marvel at Teruaki Sato.

The Hanshin Tigers rookie is just 15 games into his career and already among the players generating the most buzz in NPB.

Sato produced one of the early highlights of the season on Friday night, hitting a ball out of Yokohama Stadium during the Tigers’ 9-2 win over the DeNA BayStars. Sato didn’t hit it out in the traditional sense — as in he simply left the yard and put a run on the board. No, the 22-year old belted a solo homer clear out of the stadium in an impressive show of power.
