It’s been an awesome first half for long homers. We’ve been tracking them week by week and, as the season begins anew today, we’re going to bring you the longest homers we’ve seen over the first three-plus months of the season. Only one player appears in the top ten twice, and I’m pretty sure you know who he is.
Also: we’re not featuring anything from the Home Run Derby. In-game action only, folks. Also, I’m not going to be giving any commentary on these homers – I think the massive blasts speak for themselves. Anyway, let’s begin.
1. Mike Trout vs Jason Vargas, 489 feet (June 27th)
