Javy Baez ALSO Crushes His First Homer of the Year (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

Let’s see …

Reds pitching in Great American Ballpark, check.

Solo homer, check.

First homer of the year, check.

23-degree bullet sent out at 107 mph, check.

Am I talking about Jason Heyward’s home run tonight?

The full video of the blast is here at MLB.com.

That was another bullet, with the same launch angle and exit velocity as Heyward’s. And, like Heyward’s, it came on a pitch dead straight in the middle of the strike zone. Guys won’t always make that mistake, but you love seeing Cubs hitters crushing it when they do.
