Kyle Schwarber just took this baseball to outer space and even Bryce Harper cannot believe it.
The National League Championship Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres got underway on Tuesday between the last two remaining teams in the National League. The Phillies took a 1-0 lead on a Harper solo shot in the fourth to get things going, but Schwarber kicked things up a notch in the sixth.
On just the first pitch of the inning, Schwarber took Yu Darvish deep; 488 feet deep to be precise with this monster home run to double the Phillies lead. And what a home run it was, coming in as the longest hit ball at Petco Park, too.
What a bomb! Harper’s mind-blown reaction is the icing on the cake, as every Phillies fan surely felt this way seeing Schwarber blast one into the night like that.
Us too, Harper, us too!
