Video: Brandon Belt Hits Home Run in First At Bat Back at AAA Fresno

Brandon Belt was the talk of the San Francisco Giants spring with his solid hitting, great defense, and poise of a veteran. Many thought he'd be the Giants Buster Posey this season when he made the Opening Day squad with the G-Men, but he struggled at the plate and was sent back to AAA Fresno. Belt will probably be the Giants first baseman of the future, and whether that is later this year or beyond is yet to be seen. But one thing is for sure, the kid has got talent. 

Belt launched a homer in his first at bat of the season as a Grizzly, maybe trying to show the Giants brass that he was just in a bit of a funk at the plate instead of simply struggling with the big leaguers. Here's the video a fan took at Chuckchansi Park right behind home plate. The quality isn't the best, but the commentary is awesome. The guy gives a pretty good play-by-play as it happens, and surely will give the Grizz an extra spark with Belt back in the daily lineup:
