Watch: Cubs' Javier Báez drills homer into vacant bleachers in intrasquad game

Have you missed seeing Javier Báez go deep, Cubs fans?

During Tuesday's intrasquad game (the Cubs' first televised scrimmage) Báez drilled his first home run in four months - March 10 against the Giants in spring training. Check it out:

Tuesday's blast didn't count for anything but it still was a sight to behold. Báez hit it off lefty reliever Kyle Ryan, who was making his first intrasquad appearance after missing the early stages of Summer Camp due to a "process-based delay."

And, lest we forget the elephant in the room: the vacant bleachers Báez' blast landed in at Wrigley Field. With fans unlikely to attend Major League Baseball games this season due to COVID-19, seeing home runs hit into fan-less crowds will take some getting used to.
