Joey Gallo‘s Rangers were visiting the Angels at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Arizona for some Cactus League action on Sunday afternoon. They were down 1-0 in the top of the second facing Angels starter Matt Shoemaker, with Gallo leading off.

Gallo unloaded on a 0-1 offering from Shoemaker, blasting it way over the fence down the right field line, landing¬†in the parking lot. It’s unknown if any vehicles were damaged in the process.

Gallo, 22, enters the season as the Rangers’ top prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. He made his major league debut last season, hitting .204/.301/.417 with six home runs and 14 RBI over 123 plate appearances. The Rangers are expected to assign him to Triple-A Round Rock to begin the 2016 season.
