Mike Napoli hit 900+ feet of homers on Wednesday

Mike Napoli loves himself some Rogers Centre. Four of Napoli's six homer runs this season have come in the home of the Blue Jays, and three of those four homers have cleared 460 feet.

In Wednesday's Red Sox-Blue Jays game in Toronto, Napoli put on an unreal performance of pure strength. In the fourth inning, Napoli hit his first home run of the evening to dead center field. The ball actually traveled above the camera angle, but ended up hitting off of the third deck in center field, traveling 472 feet.

In the seventh, Napoli smashed his second homer of the game. The three-run blast went into the fourth deck in left center field, and was measured at 467 feet.

Napoli has now hit three of the nine longest home runs in baseball this season. Five of the ten longest homers in the league this year have come at Rogers Centre, including Napoli's three smashes. He's averaging 430 feet per homer this year.

Imagine if the Blue Jays never traded him to the Rangers when he was acquired from the Angels for Vernon Wells. He might have destroyed the time space continuum.
