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