Meet Frankie Burton, the next Ryan Howard

I would like to introduce you to Frankie Burton, a 9-year old Little Leaguer from Bear, Delaware*.

Now I don’t like making outlandish comparisons, but if this isn’t a mini-clone of Ryan Howard, then no one is. The left-handed first baseman (see?) recently went yard three times during a State Tounament at Foot Locker Field in Bayonne, NJ. And by yard, I mean YARD. At 9, the kid is so dominant, that pitchers are already starting to intentionally walk him. Check the highlights and dare to call me a liar.


He’s even got the opposite field home run power. Incredible.

After the jump, check out another YouTube from a 9-year old All-Star tournament where young Frankie treats the opposing pitcher like a JUGS pitching machine.

btw, I just ordered my #13 “Bear” jersey.


* Thank you, commenter Randy.

  1. He has the big swing and miss down as well. He’s well on his way to a nightly line of three K’s, one homerun.

    He looks fat and lazy to me.

  3. Pete, I wish I knew who you were so I could hate you in person.

  4. Randy says:

    he is from bear, delaware

    A 9-year old who can hit a ball 200 feet off of another 9-year old, using an aluminum bat. Yep, that’s guaranteed Major League talent right there. I mean, this is a joke, right?

  6. Certainly, a fellow whose name is “ClownCollege” shouldn’t have to ask someone if they are joking. But just in case you slept through that course let me assure you I’m dead serious.

    And I don’t know what nuclear plant you grew up near, but 9-year olds don’t normally mash like that. Letalone thrice in two games.

    btw, they were all over 200 feet.

    Get this kid in a MooseKnukle jersey…ASAP!

  8. BennyG says:

    Lil’ Frankie is a man among boys out there. He’s blessed and highly favored. Get used to hearing his name.

    Man, his swing is as sweet as honey and he has the natural God-given Power of a Lion! What he has can not be taught. But most of all his attitude is phenominal. He is the most humble, level headed young talent you’d ever want to meet. He’s definitely going places… and he’s going far! That’s right, get used to hearing this soon to be — household name!

  10. Mercedes says:

    my lil brother is a phenominal living legend…God has given him a great talent and he WILL go far with it!!! May God continue to bless him!!!

    I’m fourteen. When I was nine, I played, and the field wasn’t that big, maybe 200 ft tops to deep center. But nobody once went deep that season. Nobody went deep went when I was ten. One person did, once, when I was eleven, and they were a legend for the rest f the time that they played. When I was twelve, I witnessed exactly two home runs, by exactly two different batters.

    This is all with aluminum bats, btw.

    I don’t know how the kid’s doing it, but he is. I can’t wait until he really matures, then we’ll see what his true talent is.
