It's now more expensive to be a Cubs fan since they won the World Series last year

Kris Bryant hit a baseball very, very far on Saturday, so far that it bounced off the massive video board in left-center at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs slugger has opened the year in a significant slump, so to see his first homer come in grand fashion can’t be a bad sign.

Bryant’s shot flew around 451 feet, and is the sixth to hit off the board since the Cubs installed it, according to’s Carrie Muskat. The two-run blast scored Kyle Schwarber.

Of those six home runs, Bryant has now hit four of them.
