What Are The Longest In-Game HR You Remember Seeing?
I remember seeing Cecil Fielder hit a couple out of Tiger Stadium. Those inspired some feverish HRD between me and friends.
Glenalen Hill mashed one as a Cub that went over the rooftops across the street beyond the Wrigley bleachers.
That shot Bonds lifted off of Percival in the WS. Or Pujols unloading on Lidge in the NLCS. Those were colossal smashes.
I also don't believe for a second that Mantle hit one 565. The story changed a lot over the years and beyond that, it supposedly hit a sign 460 feet away - far as ****, but impossible to say for sure how far it went.
It seems to me that 515-520 is about the max a ball can go.
The Juan Francisco home run against the Cubs a few years back when he was still with the Reds comes to mind. Then probably the Bond's home run in the old Yankee Stadium. I remember that ball going halfway up the 3rd deck.
That McGwire home run against Randy Johnson was a bomb too.
Delgado vs the Mets. I was a little kid and I don't remember who it was off but Delgado absolutely crushed this pitch but pulled it just foul. The ball had to be 20 or 30 rows from making it out of the Dome in right field. For a while, the spot where he hit the ball was even marked. Anyways, on the very next pitch he hit an actual home run.
