Farmers Only - It’s Elly De La Cruz’s world, we’re just living in it

Elly De La Cruz bashed a 512 foot home run for the AA Chattanooga Lookouts on Thursday evening. Five-hundred and twelve feet, which is enough feet to clear the old PNC Tower with seventeen feet to spare.

Five-hundred and twelve feet, and off the bat, it looked every bit that far.

MAMMOTH 512' from Elly De La Cruz his 1st Double-A HOME RUN!!!

As if the legend of Elly De La Cruz hadn’t already reached Paul Bunyan-esque levels of absurdity, he later stole home when the opponents wholly underestimated his ability to, y’know, do things like steal home.
