Kris Bryant’s home run Monday night may have landed on Waveland Avenue a year ago.

Instead, his first long ball at Wrigley Field landed in the top of the new left-field bleachers. The the-run blast was absolutely hammered — the definition of a no-doubter right off the bat.

It’ll be tough for homers to go out on the street now with the new video board in left. Bryant will surely hit a bomb off the board at some point.

It was Bryant’s second homer of the season and first at home. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo parked the very next pitch into the unfinished right-field bleachers.

You can watch both home runs below:

The bleachers opened to much fanfare Monday after being closed for the first month of the season as part of the ongoing renovation. The right-field bleachers are expected to open in the middle of next month.
