Video: Watch ex-Red Wily Mo Pena blast a 500-foot home run in Japan

Hey, remember former Reds outfielder Wily Mo Pena? Well, he is apparently crushing balls in Japan and this video serves as proof of his freakish power.

The 32-year-old is currently playing for the Orix Buffaloes and he recently hit a baseball a very long way. How about 492 feet to be exact? The only reason the ball didn't travel further was because the ceiling of the dome got in its way.

For the record, Pena spent 2002-2011 in the United States making stops in Cincinnati, Boston, Washington, Arizona and Seattle. It appears he's now well loved overseas and how could he not with mammoth blasts such as this one?
