Javier Baez’s moonshot left Aaron Hicks hopelessly praying to the baseball gods

One of the funniest moments of Sunday’s Yankees vs. Cubs came when Aaron Hicks was tasked with trying to locate a Javier Baez moonshot.

Baez launched this thing into the dang stratosphere, so we can’t really blame Hicks for looking confused.

Poor guy looks like he’s just praying to the baseball Gods in the hope somehow the ball will show itself to him. Just one problem: It was behind him.

This really wasn’t a routine home run. The velocity and angle made it something completely different.

Little did Hicks know at this moment that he was going to be playing another 15 innings of baseball.
