Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber just had a moment. In the seventh inning of Game 4 of the Chicago Cubs playoff series against the St. Louis Cardinals, Schwarber took a pitch from Kevin Siegrist and essentially launched it into another dimension.
The calls that the ball had reached over the Budweiser sign were not wrong either.

Schwarber’s dinger was so monstrous that the Oakland A’s felt compelled to film a Vine at O.co Coliseum to hammer home how far Schwarber was able to hit the baseball.

The official distance for Schwarber’s home run clocked in at 419 feet, which sounds like it’s off by about 3,000 miles.
