    Cool.

    Things will always work out in the end, but if you want them to turn out a certain way... You need to make it happen.

    Bautista is 1st at 117.5 mph
    Gomes is 3rd at 116.4 mph
    JPA is 9th at 115.0 mph
    Mathis is 11th at 114.6 mph


    other notables also in the top 100 hardest hit HR's:

    Johnson - 112.4 mph
    Thames - 112.3 mph
    Rasmus - 112.0 mph
    Encarnacion- 111.9 mph
    R.Davis - 111.9
    Lawrie - 110.4 mph


    so...pretty much our entire order can murder a baseball...only guy missing on this list is Escobar..

    NOTE: Lind isn't anywhere in the few hundred as far as I can tell

    Stanton just OBLITERATED Bautista's homer. Bautista's was 117 MPH, Stanton hit one 5 MPH faster on a grand slam homer that ended up BREAKING the Marlins new scoreboard. What a friggin' laser.

    122.4 MPH - Easily and by far the fastest homer of the year.

    Stanton's power and bat speed are both ridiculous. Kid is going to be a very, very good hitter for a long time.....He is only 22 years old ffs, and put up an OPS of .893 with 34 HR's last year in only 516 AB's at the age of 21.

    Also off Moyer who pitched it at 77MPH. Makes it even more impressive.
    Signature removed because **** is a dodging filter

    that was a vulgar display of BP power I say Jose still should be the leader because he hit it off a major league pitcher not Moyer.

    That the rockies even allow Moyer to pitch in the MLB is unbelievable.

    He's the epitome of the word phenom. He's incredibly underrated against the likes of Harper and Trout and even guys like Lawrie to an extent but he is and is going to remain an amazing player. Who knows, we may be looking at the makings of a hall of famer.

    So you remember how I said it was the fastest this year so far? Don't expect anyone to beat it.
