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.
