Chicago Cubs Star Third Baseman Kris Bryant is a cheat code at the plate. He really is. This extremely hot take was proven once again on Sunday when Kris absolutely annihilated a 0-2 pitch from the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Rubby De La Rosa, and it traveled an estimated 495 … FOUR HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE feet — the longest dinger in the major leagues this season.
Here it is again because it’s that deep/just in case that video gets taken down.
The best part about this highlight is Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta, who stared at the ball traveling out of Wrigley Field like Bernard Gilkey in Men In Black when he saw the giant alien spaceship:
The home run was Kris’ 86th RBI of the year — which officially ties him for the Chicago Cubs franchise record for runs batted in during a single season via a rookie.
I’m willing to go out on a limb and say he’s going to get the record for himself before year’s end…
