WATCH: Kyle Schwarber smashes gargantuan 473-foot grand slam


by - Senior Writer -

MILWAUKEE — Annihilating the first pitch thrown to him in his second-inning at-bat, Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber clobbered a monstrous 473-foot grand slam to give the Cubs an early lead. The dinger to right put the Cubs up 4-0 over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.

Marking the second grand slam of Schwarber's career, the no-doubter came after Schwarber made perfect contact on a two-seamer thrown by Brewers starter Zach Davies. The bases-clearing blast left the bat at 114 miles per hour and had a launch angle of 23 degrees.
