WATCH: Freeman crushes son’s pitch in ‘backyard baseball’

With the baseball season on hold, Freddie is keeping in form.

Freddie Freeman’s wife, Chelsea, tweeted a video Sunday of Freddie and their 3-year-old son, Charlie, playing some “backyard baseball.”

Freddie showed no mercy. He crushed Charlie’s high, off-speed throw into a faraway wooded area.

Maybe Charlie’s more of a slugger, like his dad. Earlier this month, Charlie showed off his swing in the cage.

The Freemans last week donated $125,000 toward local coronavirus relief efforts.
