Mustachioed Birthday Boy Patrick Wisdom Crushes a 448(!)-Foot Shot in the First (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

What a start to the game against the White Sox.

Michael Hermosillo led off by drawing a nine-pitch walk off of Dallas Keuchel. Then Frank Schwindel worked a six-pitch single. And then Patrick Wisdom comes up, on his 30th birthday and sporting a new mustache, and he does this:

That’s 448 feet waaaay out to left, per Statcast. It’s the 22nd homer on the year for Wisdom, who really wants to nail down that third base job for next year before this season ends. Gonna be hard to say no if he keeps doing this.

That homer, by the way? Ties him with Javy Báez for the Cubs team lead.
