When you hear the name "Giancarlo Stanton", the one baseball trait that should come to your mind is "massive homers". In tonight's Marlins-Rockies game at Coors Field, Stanton delivered one of his trademark blasts to left center that landed five rows from the top of the concourse. As soon as he made contact, Rockies pitcher Josh Roenicke just gives it a glance, knowing it's long gone.
Steve Berthiaume of ESPN later tweeted that the homer was measured at 494 feet, the longest in baseball since 2009. Holy crap, what a shot.
