New Oakland Athletics first baseman Billy Butler hit his first homer as a member of the team Monday night against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
But that’s so far from being the actual story here.
Butler literally hit the ball out of the ballpark. No seriously, he did.
The towering blast came off Astros starter Scott Feldman, who could do nothing more than just stand there in absolute awe.
Country Breakfast, as he is known, signed a three-year, $30 million deal with Oakland in the winter. Following that hit, Butler is batting at a .400 on the season.
Because the roof is closed at Minute Maid Park most of the time, they don’t really keep track of balls that are actually HIT OUT of the stadium. But it’s safe to say Butler’s blast is one of the best in the history of the stadium.
It was definitely a WOW moment.
