The ball came off Cruz’s bat at 116 mph, according to MLB’s Statcast data. It was the 19th home run to ever land in the club level at Globe Life Park and Cruz — who played for the Rangers from 2005-2013 — can claim three of those 19. He is tied with Boston’s Hanley Ramirez for the major league lead in home runs at 10.
