Ketel Marte his his first career leadoff home run on Sunday against New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz, and it’s one we’ll never forget.

Check out the distance on this blast from the Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder.

Talk about demoralizing a pitcher right from the start.

Arizona wasn’t finished teeing off on Matz, either, finishing the top half of the first inning with a three-run lead.
