We’ve said for a couple weeks now that Jorge Soler is heating up, and he’s not slowing down today.
After singling in a run in the first inning, Soler came to the plate in the 4th and did this to a 1-2 slider over the middle:
The swing was beautiful. The sound was haunting. The bounce off the video board was violent. And Soler’s reaction was perfect.
How prodigious was that blast? Well:
Jorge Soler's HR was projected at 461ft… The longest by a #Cubs player this year by 20ft. (Exit velocity 108.3MPH)
