Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s home run against the Royals.

Toronto Blue Jays’ first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has become quite known for his home runs, including a tremendous showing with 91 dingers in the 2019 Home Run Derby. But the one he hit Thursday night against the Kansas City Royals’ Kyle Zimmer was his longest in MLB play to date, travelling 456 feet:

As per MLB’s Sarah Langs, that came with an exit velocity of almost 113 miles per hour:

Interestingly enough, ESPN Stats and Info noted that this was close to, but not quite as far as, Guerrero’s famous father’s longest shot in Kansas City:

The Blue Jays lost this game 7-5, but at least they had this highlight to celebrate.
