There are few things baseball fans love more than watching a baseball leave the yard and on Friday night, Texas Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara put on a show with a record-tying home run blast.

In the first inning against the Chicago White Sox, Mazara sat on a fastball and drilled it deep into the second deck at Globe Life Park in Arlington for an insane 505-foot home run.

Mazara’s two-run blast tied the Statcast record for the furthest home run hit since the technology was introduced to MLB stadiums in 2015. It ties Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story’s 505-foot blast at Coors Field.

While the 24-year-old isn’t having the greatest of success at the plate this season, he raised his OPS to .767 with the record-tying home run. Mazara clearly has a lot of power to offer and if he can start making contact more frequently, fans should enjoy even more home runs in the future.
