[6/9/2016] Dayan Viciedo’s monster shot

Dayan Viciedo crushed the first pitch he saw from Takahiro Matsuba (a fastball down the middle about waist-high) in the top of the fourth inning against the Orix Buffaloes at Kyocera Dome on June 8. The ball landed on a chair in the first row of the fifth-floor area.

Articles posted after the blast mention the ball breaking the seat it landed on (these is a picture of the seat at the Daily Sports link below). Published accounts put the estimate at 135 meters, likely the distance from home plate to the area it landed.
