For Pete's Sake

Marlins player hit a 468-foot home run off a banner hanging at Tropicana Field

This was something out of the movie, “The Natural.”

On Wednesday night, Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna hit a home run against the Rays’ Blake Snell at Tropicana Field. The ball actually hit the Rays’ 2011 Wild Card banner in left field. It looks like it came close to hitting a bank of lights.

Statcast said the ball went 468 feet.
