The ball screamed its way across a monstrous 495 feet and nearly hit the retired numbers below the scoreboard. It was the longest shot in 2017 so far and if it had been in 2016, it would have been the second-longest home run, right below Giancarlo Stanton's 504ft homer at Coors Field, which feels like cheating anyway. (Thin air, and all.) And mind you: it's only June.
