WATCH: Philadelphia Phillies Ryan Howard crushes a ball to upper deck

Rumors of Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard’s power demise may have been greatly exaggerated.  He’s only yanked one home run since May 7.  By all counts his recovery from an Achilles heel injury has sapped some of his power as he struggles in his lower half.  But not on this jack.  Ryan Howard treats both fans in the upper deck and a kid holding up a sign saying “ALL I WANT FOR MY BIRTHDAY IS A HOMERUN FROM HOWARD”.

Howard shows he can still get a hold of one off of Washington Nationals Dan Haren.  Watch via MLB.com:

The kid even had the foresight to paint “Thank You” on the other side of the sign:
