Javy Báez, you are cleared for liftoff.
In Saturday's Cubs-Pirates game, Báez absolutely crushed a solo homer to the batter's eye in center field, nearly getting it up in the bleacher seats under Wrigley Field's historic scoreboard.

That home run clocks in at 448 feet, with a cool exit velocity of 107.9 mph. It's the furthest of the three homers he's hit this season. He hit a pair on Tuesday in Cincinnati, which traveled 371 and 420 feet.
Javy bombs are in full swing, Cubs fans.
