Sayville’s Logan O’Hoppe returned to the Los Angeles Angels Aug. 18 after spending four-months on the injured list.
Four days later, he smashed a 392-foot solo home run in the fourth inning against the Cincinnati Reds. Watch it below.
O’Hoppe, who was having a promising rookie season, had to ride the bench after suffering a torn labrum back in April. Before the injury, he played in 16 games, where he hit four home runs and 13 RBIs on a .283 batting average.
O’Hoppe, a 23rd-round draft pick by the Phillies in 2018 acquired in a trade last Aug. 2, became the youngest catcher in Angels history to start opening day at 23 years and 49 days.
The Long Islander returns to New York Friday night as the team starts a three-game series against the New York Mets.
