Would You Be Surprised if I Told You Chris Morel Homered on the First Pitch of the Game?

Chicago Cubs

The on-base streak lives! It’s now 21-games long.

On the very first pitch of the game, Cubs leadoff man and center fielder Chris Morel launched his third home run of the season over the left field wall.

Some numbers: That pitch was 95 MPH at the top of the zone, and Morel hit it out at 109 MPH (429 feet). This guy is something else.
