Kris Bryant 28th home run of 2016.
Waveland Avenue !!
In 2015 Kris Bryant hit 26 homers breaking the long standing Chicago Cubs team recordfor home runs by a first year player ( Billy Williams 25 in 1961 ) while becoming the National League rookie of the year . Even though Kris hit 21 of those 26 home runs at Wrigley Field , none of those reached Waveland avenue .
Actually only THREE home runs total reached the street in all of 2015 .A feat made increasingly more difficult by expansion of the bleachers including video boards and large signage .
In the bottom of the 5th Kris turned on Jered Weavers first pitch launching this baseball , his 54th career home run , 430ft down the left field line and out of Wrigley Field completely!Landing in the middle of Waveland Avenue it found the three foot gap between two buildings and was eventually chased down .
A total of 11 home runs left Wrigley ( all on Waveland ) in 2016 and Kris had 3 !
The Cubs won this game 5-1 !
