From the steps of the dugout, the balls Matt Kemp hits for home runs look different from those that other players hit over the stadium fence.
"They take off like fly balls and they just get small quick," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. "You can tell when he gets them. They get really small really quick."
So quickly that they don't even look like baseballs from the third base coach's box.
"It looks more like a golf ball," third base coach Tim Wallach said. "It really does. It's amazing. It keeps going. It's real small and it keeps going."
Dodgers' Matt Kemp a right-thinking kind of slugger
