That was a no-doubter.

Royals catcher Salvador Perez was robbed of an extra-base hit during Tuesday night’s contest on a dazzling catch by Detroit’s Mikie Mahtook, but no one was going to catch this one.

Perez hit a home run on Wednesday night off Tigers starter Daniel Norris. Perez’s homer went 451 feet and the ball was traveling 109 mph off the bat. It was — in a word — crushed.

Major League Baseball tweeted a video of the homer:
