Ronald Acuña Jr. is fresh off a fantastic 2019 campaign in which he helped guide the Atlanta Braves to their second-straight NL East title. Unfortunately, the Braves didn't make it far in the postseason, but this is the dawn of a new season. And after watching this video of Acuña taking some massive hacks in batting practice, Braves should enter 2020 bursting with confidence.

That's the swing of a man who's on a mission. Acuña is ready to lay waste to anything that sits in his path in 2020.

It's scary to think what he might have in store for this season. At the age of 21 last year, he hit 41 home runs, stole 37 bases and finished fifth in NL MVP voting. Despite the phenomenal year, he's set the bar even higher in terms of his goals for himself.

Acuña took the league by storm in his rookie year and followed it up with even more stellar sophomore season. Fans in Atlanta are expecting big things from the 22-year-old sensation, and he's set to deliver in 2020.
