Chicago White Sox center fielder Luis Robert hit a titanic home run in the top of the second inning against the Athletics in Game 3 of their American League wild-card round series Thursday afternoon, one of the longest of the Statcast era.

Robert's bomb traveled 487 feet, which is the second-longest postseason home run since Statcast was implemented in the 2015 season.

The only playoff home run that has traveled further than Robert's was 491-foot home run by Cubs' catcher Willson Contreras in Game 4 of the 2017 National League Championship Series, according to MLB.com.

Believe it or not, Robert's home run wasn't the longest of the 2020 season. Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. blasted a 495-foot home run in September, one of the five longest home runs in the history of Statcast.
