Kyle Schwarber Just Hit The Second Longest Home Run In Citi Field History

Chicago Cubs Highlights

Jay Bruce would have needed to be wearing a rocket ship on his backside to catch this one:


That’s right, you’re looking at a home run hit by Kyle Schwarber off Matt Harvey that traveled 467 feet – and over the Shea Bridge beyond the Mets bullpen in right field.

Schwarber’s blast registers as the 10th longest home run of the year. While it’s not the longest home run Schwarber has hit (he hit a 470-foot blast on May 23) he did become the only player to have two of Statcast’s 10 longest dingers of the season. His fourth-inning home run bumps a 466-foot Manny Machado shot from May 4 off Kyle Kendrick out of the top-10.

Seriously, though. Watch it again:
