Shohei Ohtani demolishes baseball

429 feet!

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Minnesota Twins Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes, this sport takes your breath away.

Shohei Ohtani took a 3-1 pitch from Jose Berrios and deposited it high and deep into left-center. For someone who went the other way, the ball kept carrying and carrying.

The beat writers tried to warn us in batting practice:

After returning from the Injured List, Ohtani struggled last week, although he did hit a couple balls with authority in the Orioles series. Now, the monkey is off his back, and he can focus on replicating that long ball.

In other news, Kole Calhoun hit the most beautiful bunt in the world. I think I cried.
