Yankees Prospect Homer Lands On Top of a Freaking Building

Baseball Is Fun

In Game 4 of the 2015 NLDS, Kyle Schwarber immortalized himself by hitting a massive home run onto the top of the brand new right field video board at Wrigley Field. The homer came in Chicago (that’s a big city), during a playoff series (that doesn’t happen a lot), against the St. Louis Cardinals (Cubs fans hate those guys), so the stage was about as big as it could be.

Jake Cave of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders hit a similarly massive home run onto a building across the street. Since the stage/moment wasn’t quite as big as the Schwarber-ball, it won’t get nearly as much attention.

But good gravy, Jake Cave:

Remember, it’s not just about the distance, in this particular case, it’s about keeping the ball in the air long enough to actually reach the top of the building across the street. Yeah, that’s about as far as people tend to hit baseballs at any level of the game.

Obligatory: that time Glenallen Hill did the same thing at Wrigley Field.
