We’re all fans of watching some long home runs fly out of the ballpark.
On Saturday afternoon in game two of the Guardians’ three-game set with the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium, Jones had a moment that he will never forget.
Jones connected for his first career home run as the Guardians rolled to a 13-1 victory, and the home run traveled 457 feet.
The ball went into the fountains for a three-run homer, extending their lead to 11-0 as his family celebrated.
The Guardians posted the highlight on Twitter.

Jones Goes Yard
That’s one way to kick off your major league career.
He crushed that ball.
That’s not too shabby for your first big-league home run.
His family was in attendance too and got to enjoy the moment.
Big home runs like that are always fun to see.
Jones certainly put a charge into that one and gave it a ride.
There’s nothing like a 457-foot home run for your first in the big leagues with your family in attendance.
They certainly enjoyed that home run just as much as any other baseball fan would.
Jones picked a good time to hit his first major league home run and picked a good place to put it as well.
The fountains at Kauffman Stadium are in one of the deepest parts of the ballpark.
He did not miss that one.
Any time you can start your career with a home run that high and that deep, you’ve definitely done something right.
You have to feel good for Jones, as well as admire how hard he hit that ball.
