Video: Javier Baez slugs his first Wrigley Field home run

Aug 13, 2014, 9:35 PM EDT

And the ball actually traveled out of Wrigley Field, onto Waveland Avenue. Watch it fly …

Baez now has four home runs on the season. He slugged the first three at Coors Field in Colorado.

    And this isn’t even the Cubs top prospect!

    Bryant and Soler and shredding the ball!

    Everyone keeps talking about all of the quality in the Astro’s farm system. But here the Cubs bring up this kid and still have Bryant in the minors. Things may be getting much better in Wrigley before long.

      Just noticed the way this kid nearly drags his knee on the backswing. Remind anyone else of Reggie, does it?

        Gonna give him some great lift on the ball. Should be good at Wrigley.

    It seems like great young talent is just pouring into the bigs these days. Nice to think that there’ll be another golden age dawning just in time for my grandchildren to hook into it all.

      Yeah, it’s exciting to see some of these young guys coming up. I plan to last long enough to enjoy it for a while longer.

    I am a realistic Cubs fan and have seen enough ‘prized’ prospects fail, however I have a high level of optimism for this new wave of prospects the Cubs have in their system. As difficult as the Cubs have been to watch over the past few years, the new regime has provided a level of excitement that I haven’t felt in a while. I am actually enjoying watching some of the young core pieces develop and have seen enough positive signs to keep me engaged for the future of this team.
