Wallace, who started his pro career in Greeneville last season, knocked 20 long balls over the fence to claim the South Atlantic League trophy. Here is what he said to the local paper after the victory.
"It was fun," said Wallace, who was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 16th round of the 2010 first-year player draft. "I got in a little bit of a groove that continued from my first round. I don't know what happened; something got in to me the last two rounds. I was just having a lot of fun out there."..."I just felt good," Wallace said. "I felt good in batting practice today, and the guy throwing the ball was really just hanging them in there. I really need to thank him for grooving some balls in there for me."
Wallace picked up a $500 along with his trophy (pictured in link).
Meanwhile, at the California League vs. Carolina League All Star event, Kody Hinze hit 5 of his 10 dingers in the final round to win that All Star Home Run Derby.
