CHICAGO — The Cubs are showing off their home run hitting force this postseason, but the bomb that Kyle Schwarber hit in Game 4 might have been the most impressive.
The home run, which officially went 419 feet and sailed over the Budweiser video board in right field, put the Cubs up 6-4 in the seventh inning, erupting Wrigleyville in cheers.
He also called it, according to teammate Dexter Fowler.
When asked about Fowler's comment, Schwarber confirmed his call with a smile.
"Yeah. We were out in centerfield and Joe [Maddon] was making a pitching change," Schwarber said. "I was just joking around and said: ‘I’m going to hit a home run off this guy.’ He's like, 'Do it.' And there you go.”
Our question: Where did it land?
The bomb seemingly cleared the right field scoreboard, installed at the beginning of the season, and TBS announcers seemed to think it landed outside the park on Sheffield Avenue.
This tweet seems to suggest it landed just behind the "Budweiser" marquee on the scoreboard.

Wherever it landed, Twitter was impressed by the bomb that looked like it went well beyond the Friendly Confines.
Schwarber's homerun went to River North and paid entirely too much for its food and drink— JACK-O-LANTERN Pegs (@JackPeglow) October 13, 2015
It's now 6-4 Cubs after seven innings. Someone may want to check Lake Michigan for Schwarber's ball. :-) #NLDS— CubsHub (@cubshub) October 13, 2015
They had to call Chicago O'Hare Air Traffic Control to avoid planes being hit by that Schwarber HR 😂 https://t.co/V7UJ48gxOB— Fernando Luis (@nandodeponce) October 13, 2015
