Countdown to the 10 longest-running home runs of the MLB season

Milwaukee Christian Willich Absolute moon shot hit Tuesday night In Coorsfield.

The 2018 MVP came to a screeching halt after the 2019 season, and although he has dealt with a string of injuries since signing an extension in 2020, Yelich turned back the clock with a giant first rocket landing on the third floor of the Coors.

Homer’s deep shot was the longest by a left-handed hitter in the park’s history, and unsurprisingly, it became the longest heartbeat point of the season, losing just 500 feet.

The hitters are going to have a tough time surpassing Yelich’s achievement as the campaign winds down, but while we’re talking about the big bangs, let’s take a look at our longest running home run for the 2022 season.

T-9: Kyle SchwarberAnd the Philadelphia Phyllis – 468 feet (Coors Field, April 20)

Phillies’ season has been marked by ups and downs, but Schwarber’s strength has been consistent throughout the year. The right-handed pitcher plus high-flying Joe Coors was the perfect recipe for Schwarber to go to the top shelf in Colorado.

T-9: Jorge SolerAnd the Miami Marlins – 468 feet (LoanDepot Park, April 29)

Soler’s formidable ability made him the world champion last year, and while he didn’t stand out much in the spotlight with the Marlins, his high-quality power is still perhaps his best tool.

T-7: Jordan AlvarezAnd the Houston Astros – 469 feet (RingCentral Coliseum Amphitheater, May 30)

FOX Sports Baseball Analyst Ben Verlander Alvarez has been described as the best hitter in baseball this summer (yes, he knows Aaron Judge Existing). Explosions like this are part of the reason.

T-7: Byron BuxtonAnd the Minnesota Twins – 469 feet (Target Field, April 24)

Buxton has been considered a five-instrument athlete since he was the number one player in baseball nearly a decade ago, but long balls are probably their lesser-known trait. That has changed, hitting 28 and hitting this season, the first time he’s exceeded 20.

6: Mike TroutAnd the Los Angeles Angels – 472 feet (Globe Live Field, April 14)

Any surprise trout name on this list? Guy seems synonymous with lists that deal with striking excellence, and this is no different.

5: Gary SanchezAnd the Minnesota Twins – 473 feet (Yankee stadium, September 5)

“El Gary” had his revenge on his mind when he visited his old stadium last weekend, and the Yanks won’t forget that slingshot anytime soon.

4. CJ CrohnAnd the Colorado Rockies – 486 feet (Coors Field, June 17)

Hot dogs, anyone? Kron deserved the bonus ball after this well-placed blast near the third floor hot dog stand in June.

3: Ryan McMahonColorado Rockies – 495 feet (Coors Field, Aug. 9)

Don’t be surprised to see another Coloradan on this list. Coors have been nicknamed the hitting pitch of all batsmen, and baseballs seem to hold differently when they are hit at Mile High.

2: Jesus SanchezAnd the Miami Marlins – 496 feet (Coors Field, May 30)

Danger Sanchez reverberated throughout Coors Stadium as soon as his racket came into contact with the ball. Then, very little could be discovered, as the host audience watched the ball sail up to the third set in faint horror. The blast has put Sanchez in the top five with the longest heart rates in the past five years.

1: Christian Welich, Milwaukee Brewers – 499 feet (Coors Field, Sept. 6)

And then there was one. Approximately 500 feet from the previous MVP’s racket. The history of baseball.
