Joe Mauer's first home run of the season landed in a spot where he rarely hits them: over the big wall in right-center at Target Field.

According to Statcast, Mauer powered it out at 102.8 mph, clearing the wall in right-center field for a 403-foot shot. 

FanGraphs started keeping track of player spray charts in 2012, and of Mauer's 53 home runs since 2012, only 23 have gone to the right side of the field
