You want to know what an extreme line drive home run looks like? Willson Contreras just gave us a perfect example.
This is as long and flat as you’ll see a homer (non-Giancarlo Stanton edition):

That was 116.0 mph off the bat (gotta be one of his hardest hit balls ever), and just 18 degrees of launch angle – that’s super flat for a ball that goes 378 feet. Just an absolute laser homer.
Happiness in the dugout:
