Blake Swihart’s First Career Home Run Traveled A Long, Long Way (Video)


June 5, 2015

BOSTON — Blake Swihart launched his first major league home run Thursday, and it left no doubt as it exited the ballpark.

The rookie Red Sox catcher got a hold of a fastball from Minnesota Twins starter Tommy Milone and sent it clear over the Green Monster seats, possibly breaking a window or two down on Lansdowne Street.
