488 feet! Schwarber drops jaws with upper-deck Petco HR

For a brief moment on Tuesday night, we were all two-time National League MVP Bryce Harper: speechless.

That’s because Kyle Schwarber blasted a baseball into orbit—a Statcast-projected 488 feet, to be exact—in the sixth inning of the Phillies’ 2-0 victory over the Padres in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. It was the longest homer hit at Petco Park since Statcast tracking began in 2015.

“Well, first off, I would have taken it if it went in the first row,” Schwarber said. “I really don’t care—a point is a point. It doesn’t feel like anything, I guess. That’s probably the good thing, is that your hands don’t hurt at the end of it. To be able to put up a run there and extend the lead, it was nice.”
