Former Vanderbilt baseball standout Mike Baxter drilled an opposite field home run against the Nashville Sounds at Greer Stadium on Monday night. Baxter went 3-for-3 on the day with a pair of singles, a home run and two runs scored to lead Triple-A Portland to a 4-3 win over Nashville.
Baxter's stellar effort Monday was witnessed by members of the current Vanderbilt baseball team and other Commodore faithful.
A native of Queens, N.Y., Baxter is hitting .287, including a .400 on-base percentage with three home runs, eight RBI and nine stolen bases in 33 games for AAA Portland.
Here is the video of his home run that I caught with the flip.
