He's just second player to hit a ball to the CATCH seats at Target Field. Byung-Ho Park was the other player and his was four feet shorter than Sano's.

Sano came into Tuesday's game leading the league in RBI and is among the league's best in a variety of offensive statistics.

Jim Thome still holds the record with a 490 foot home run back in 2011 but Sano's cracked the top five.
