Boog Powell, 19 years old, of the 1961 Rochester Red Wings.

Boog hit .321 with 32 homers and 92 RBI in 142 games for Rochester that year, and it was his last stop in the minors. He was called up to Baltimore late in the season, and didn't leave until 1975, at which point he had probably gained 100 pounds since the snapping of the above shot.
