Avisail Garcia cranked a dinger during Saturday night’s Tampa Bay Rays game against the Chicago White Sox that tested the limits of the dome covering Tropicana Field.
An 80-mph changeup from White Sox ace Lucas Giolito stayed up in the zone, and Garcia demolished the pitch for a home run to left field that hit off a 2008 AL Champions Banner hanging high at the very back of the building. It was a go-ahead homer to give the Rays a 1-0 lead in the seventh, but the White Sox came back to win 2-1 in extras.
Here’s video of the monstrous blast:

Garcia hitting absurd bombs at the Trop is nothing new- compare Thursday’s homer to a blast he hit to the catwalk earlier in the season.
