Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez managed to knock out another stadium light with a home run
During the Class A Advanced Carolina League's Home Run Derby two weeks ago, top Cubs prospect and Extremely Large Human Eloy Jimenez went full Roy Hobbs and launched a dinger into the lights:

Of course, the team whose ballpark that light fixture belonged to was a little less enthused:
But, as Jimenez politely pointed out, there was a loophole:
Hahahahah sorry! But hey the lights are behind the fence! Anything can happen ���� https://t.co/1ZfewDQGXc- Eloy jimenez (@Lamantha21) July 2, 2017
If this whole baseball thing doesn't work out, he has a bright future as a lawyer.
