The Chicago Cubs were without a hit against Arizona’s Rubby De La Rosa through four innings on Sunday. Then Kris Bryant came up.
The 23-year-old rookie led-off the bottom of the fifth inning with a home run that traveled 495 feet into the Wrigley Field bleachers. The monster home run was the longest hit this season in the majors beating Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton who hit one 484 feet earlier in the year.
Check out the home run:
The ball hits the new video board in left field, otherwise it goes even further. This kid can play.
