The longest homers for the week ending August 14th

The king has returned. Long live the king.

1. Giancarlo Stanton vs Shelby Miller, 470 feet (August 11th)

If Giancarlo signs with the Marlins long-term, they need to name that “Budweiser Balcony” in honor of him.

2. Devin Mesoraco vs Brad Hand, 447 feet (August 10th)

Devin Mesoraco is having one hell of a year, huh? I can’t wait for next year’s Home Run Derby at Great American Ballpark…

3. Ryan Ludwick vs Jorge de la Rosa, 445 feet (August 14th)

Almost onto the concourse at Coors…we’ve seen balls get there before, and I’m never not impressed when it happens.

4. Nelson Cruz vs Adam Warren, 442 feet (August 12th)

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ball land on that small concourse behind the bullpens at Camden Yards. Cruz came pretty damn close to getting there.

5. Billy Butler vs Madison Bumgarner, 437 feet (August 8th)

Billy Butler is on FIRE. That’s his third appearance on the list in the last three weeks, which ties him with Justin Upton for the third-most appearances this season.

Five longest homers of the year
1. Mike Trout vs Jason Vargas, 489 feet (June 27th)
2. Giancarlo Stanton vs Eric Stults, 484 feet (April 4th)
3. David Ortiz vs Masahiro Tanaka, 482 feet (April 22nd)
4. Justin Upton vs Jenrry Mejia, 477 feet (April 10th)
5. Hanley Ramirez vs Jorge de la Rosa, 472 feet (June 8th)
