White Sox prospect Courtney Hawkins might have hit the farthest-traveling home run ever.

Hawkins went yard for the fifth time this season in Double-A Birmingham’s 10-4 win over Montgomery on Sunday, but it wasn’t just any ordinary home run.

Hawkins’ bomb traveled well over the 380-foot wall in left-center, landing on a moving freight train behind Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium.

Check it out:

The 21-year-old outfielder is ranked as the No. 9 prospect in the White Sox organization and is hitting .255 with five home runs and 21 RBIs.


The unique home run was the 51st of Hawkins’ career, but the first that has landed on a moving vehicle.
