Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber hit a ball Wednesday at Shea Stadium against the New York Mets that went into the stratosphere.

Going up against Mike Harvey in the top of the fourth inning, Schwarber destroyed the ball, which ended up clearing the Shea Bridge. It was an estimated 465-foot bomb that exited Schwarber’s bat at about 114 miles per hour.

Here’s a video of the epic home run.

We can’t stop watching. Just amazing. The two-run shot put the Cubs up 4-1 over the Mets. Apparently Joe Maddon was right and the Cubbies don’t need any extra help to spark their otherwise dull season.
