Continued: Perkins fired up after back-to-back strikeouts to finish

“I’ve never really caught a ball in this type of distance in front of you,” said Barr, who didn’t play baseball growing up but went to a handful of Dodgers games.

The Vikings won’t have to worry about MLB teams pursuing Barr anytime soon. He struggled catching the ball, went 0-for-7 during the home run derby — whiffing on a few underhand softball tosses — and lobbed in the first pitch standing in front of the mound.

McKinnon, a third-round selection, tied with TC in the home run derby with two. The running back launched two softballs into the upper deck in left center field from the center field grass.

Hicks hits lefthanded

Outfielder Aaron Hicks, on a rehab assignment at Class AA New Britain, hit lefthanded Saturday night after telling the Twins last month that he was abandoning switch hitting.
