New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is used to causing awe among fans and experts alike for the way he mashes baseballs.
But his homer in the Yankees' 6-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday landed in a place at Yankee Stadium where baseballs never do.
In the bottom of the third inning, Giants starter Ross Stripling tried to get a slider over for a strike to start off Stanton's second at-bat of the game. However, the slider didn't break and just hung there when Stanton unloaded a powerful swing.
When he connected, he immediately knew the result of that pitch.
As Stanton admired his hit, fans couldn't believe that it climbed its way up the center field wall and ended up on the terrace over the batter's eye box.
