Javy Baez calls his monster home run a ‘dream’

Javier Baez hit by far the longest home run of the season for the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night, and the slugger made it clear that it did not feel like just another homer for him.

Baez’s moonshot, which gave the Cubs a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third, measured at an incredible 481 feet. He said after the game that some of his teammates were ribbing him about not being able to hit it further, and he also described the blast as “one of my dreams.”

Here’s a video of the homer, which traveled almost 30 feet further than any home run a Cubs player has hit this year:

There’s really only one other MLB player who comes to mind when you think about home runs going that far. Though they count the same if they go 350 feet or 481 feet, there’s no denying that big fly from Baez was one of the most impressive we have ever seen.
