Kris Bryant hits the video board (again) with a home run
Is there Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant can’t do?
The 24-year-old is fresh off a 2015 season in which he won the NL Rookie of the Year and hit 26 home runs in 151 games. Now in 2016, Bryant is picking up right where he left off and Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers was just another example.
During the fifth inning, Bryant crushed a home run that hit the video board. It came off Dodgers prospect Julio Urias and was another monster shot:

Bryant’s blast also gave us this awesome reaction from his teammates in the dugout:

That was Bryant’s 13th home run of the season and his 40th RBI. The home run traveled an estimated 442 feet according to ESPN, making it the second-longest home run at Wrigley Field this season.
