Watch: Kid lines Wiffle ball off pitcher's head at Twins camp

Offer this kid a five-year, $200 million contract immediately.

Scouts around the world might want to pay attention to the little kid that smoked a line drive off a pitcher's head at a Twins camp event in Lakeville on Monday morning. 

Video of the rising star was captured by Twins communications boss Dustin Morse, who we've now found out is also the boy's father. Morse filmed his son's powerful swing and ensuing ball-to-forehead collision, and it's fantastic.

The Twins hold training camps for kids ages 6-14 throughout the season, and this week they're hosting camps in Rochester and Lakeville, which you can still register for right here

These camps last six hours per day (Monday-Thursday), with a Twins player showing up to join in on the fun and instruction during the final day.

Twins camps next Aug. 20-24 in Blaine and Chaska are already sold out.
