It wasn't the longest home run of Mike Moustakas' career, but all that mattered was the ball cleared the fence.
Moustakas clubbed a two-run homer during the second inning of the Royals' 11-9 win over the Twins on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium and it was a moonshot. The question was whether the ball was hit far enough.
Fortunately for Moustakas, the ball landed just past the 330 sign that signifies the distance from home plate in feet.
A young fan who was standing in the front row, reached down and picked up the souvenir and she was ecstatic. It made for a sweet moment.
