Eloy Jimenez shatters stadium light with home run

On Monday, Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez went all The Natural during a minor league home run derby, smacking a dinger so damn hard that it knocked out an outfield light in explosive fashion.

Unlike Roy Hobbs, Eloy Jimenez was not stabbed by a mysterious woman in a hotel room after his tryout with the Cubs. The ball towered through the night sky before slamming into a light bulb.

1 winning Powerball ticket sold in California worth $447 million
Saturday's $447.8 million prize means that six of the 10 largest Powerball jackpots ever have happened since the start of 2016. A SOLE winning lottery ticket in the U.S. has bagged the entire £350 million jackpot, officials have confirmed.

More than 2,700 fans were in attendance for the event, according to Roanoke.com.

Jimenez didn't win the derby but he captured the imagination of a whole lot of fans. Sicnarf Loopstok and Jacob Gatewood were the finalists. Robert Redford played the role of the middle-aged minor leaguer. He channeled his inner Roy Hobbs when he hit a home run into the lights beyond the left field fence.
