KSTP Sports recently spent a couple days in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with the Twins' Low-A minor league affiliate. That's where last year's No. 2 overall pick, outfielder Byron Buxton, is currently playing.

Twins vice president of personnel Mike Radcliff recently told KSTP of Buxton: "He has the fastest, quickest, most direct swing you'll ever see."

In other words, he's a great bet to be a good major leaguer in due time.

KSTP's Chris Long had the privilege of making the trip to get to know Buxton. Click on his the video box above to see his story, which aired Sunday night on 5-Eyewitness News.
