The Kansas City Royals are lucky enough to have one of the most dynamic young players in all of baseball.
Bobby Witt Jr. is somebody who can do a little bit of everything on a baseball field and is also one of many reasons why the Royals are optimistic about their future.
On Monday, Witt showed off some elite speed in the Royals’ game against the red-hot Seattle Mariners, hitting an inside-the-park home run as the Royals pulled away with a 7-6 victory.
In fact, Witt managed to circle the bases in quick fashion, doing it in just 14.3 seconds.
That’s the fastest time since 2017.
On Twitter, the team posted a video of Witt circling the bags and showing off his elite speed.
Home to home in 14.3 seconds.

This was certainly an impressive display of speed on behalf of Witt.
The young shortstop is a solid player with multiple tools in his arsenal, with speed being one of his most viable tools.
It didn’t take him long to get all the way around the basepaths on Monday night.
And when he pulled this off, he sent the crowd at Kauffman Stadium into a frenzy as they watched in utter amazement and disbelief.
But it is certainly noteworthy that nobody has circled the bases that quickly since all the way back in 2017.
Witt gave Royals fans a fun glimpse into the future as he continues to blossom as a young star in the Major Leagues.NEXT: Bobby Witt Jr. Had A Special Surprise For A Young Fan
