If I'm reading correctly, he had a round of 36.

I was wondering too...
"The derby features eight participants, including Bradenton Marauders outfielder Josh Bell, and will be broken into two rounds. Each hitter will have three minutes to hit as many home runs over McKechnie's regular wall (worth two points) or an auxiliary fence placed in the outfield (one point)."
Either way, the kid continued to impress. Perhaps a poor man's Jose Abreu (a lesser .260 AVG .314 OBP .600 SLG)....

Aside from winning the HR Derby, walker also went 3-5 with a home run in the game itself and was named MVP.

Has anyone seen him play? Can he translate to MLB pitching? We have seen Chris Parmelee and Chris Collabello dominate at lower levels, but until you see him in person, you can't always tell if he can hit a MLB fastball or breaking stuff. Too early to tell?

Must see video - (Must watch on conventional Desk Top or Lap Top / No "I Pads"). Should show highlights of only Walker hitting the ball if played on correct computer.

I haven't seen him play, but all his scouting reports remind me of Vlad Guerero for some reason... Not sure if that's a good comp or not, but he was a free swinger with some serious power.

I couldn't find game highlights. He has a quiet swing but ball seems to jump off the bat IMO
