One of Boston's best prospects went deep for the Sea Dogs, and it's immortalized in video form.

Garin Cecchini decimated the Carolina League in the minor-league season's first half, and earned a promotion to Double-A and the Eastern League for his efforts. This jump in difficulty hasn't done much to slow him down, though: he's hitting .418/.522/.600 in his first 15 games for the Sea Dogs, and late last week went deep for the first time against Double-A pitching:

The test for Cecchini was (and is) seeing him against more age-appropriate competition. To this point, the 22-year-old hasn't faltered. There is still a lot of season left, but it's somewhat comforting to see pitchers might need to adjust to him first, rather than the other way around.
