Kris Bryant 11th home run of 2016.
Waveland Avenue !!
In 2015 Kris Bryant broke the long standing Chicago Cubs team record for home runs by a first year player ( Billy Williams 25 in 1961 ) while becoming the National League rookie of the year . None of those home runs reached Waveland avenue .
Actually only THREE home runs total reached the street in all of last year . A feat made increasingly more difficult by expansion of the bleachers including video boards and large signage .
This ball, Kris' 37th career home run , bounced off the walkway behind the left field bleachers and found its way past all the new obstacles and over Waveland avenue starting a mild scrum on the sidewalk leaving Ballhawks and passerbys laid out on the pavement lol .
The final Cubs run in the Cubs 6-2 victory over the Phillies !!
* I had this ball signed by Kris while waiting outside the Cubs clubhouse to return David Ross' 100th career home run which I caught earlier in this same game .
The autograph has been authenticated by PSA DNA ( AA06220 ) and the baseball has been "permanently marked with ... invisible ink ... containing strand of synthetic DNA ... whichwill fluoresce under a calibrated laser "
Baseball has been tagged with an official ballhawk.net tamper evident numbered hologram and comes with a full detailed photo letter from ballhawk.net . ( example shown )
I enjoy having this ball in the collection and I am happy keeping it . If you are interested in adding this historic baseball to your collection please do some research through the ballhawk website and visit twitter @super_dave or instagram ballhawknet before making an offer .
