Chase your dreams. Shoot your shot. If Terrance Gore can homer, anything’s possible.
Gore — a 5-foot-7, 165-pound outfielder for the Kansas City Royals’ Triple-A team — hit his first professional home run Saturday in his 583rd game.
Gore crushed a 401-foot homer over the left-field wall at Omaha’s Werner Park in the second inning off New Orleans Baby Cakes starting pitcher Scott Copeland.
The Storm Chasers tweeted a video of Gore’s homer. Get some popcorn and watch it over and over.

The 26-year-old Gore, a 20th-round draft pick by the Royals in 2011, stepped into the batter’s box to face Copeland with 1,641 at-bats in the minors without a home run. He is hitless in seven major-league at-bats with the Royals but has scored 12 runs after being deployed as a pinch-runner.
