On Friday night at Busch Stadium, Cubs’ slugger Kyle Schwarber hit a flyball to center field that looked like it may be a routine pop-up off the bat, but instead was a monstrous dinger.

The moonshot carried well beyond the center field wall, and Statcast estimated the homer at 439 feet with a 110.1-mph exit velocity. But the Cardinals said the homer went 465 feet, and that certainly seems accurate when you see where this thing landed in comparison to the 400-foot sign on the center field wall:

It was fair to wonder if the trimmed-down Schwarber would be able to maintain the same power, and he clearly has. That’s home run No. 12 on the season for Schwarber, and it was one of the three home runs the Cubs hit against Michael Wacha over four innings.
