The longest homers for the week ending July 31st

A player making appearances on the list in multiple weeks is something that should be praised. But one player showing up on the list multiple times in the same week? Well, that just doesn’t happen too often. Don’t tell that to Billy Butler, of course.

1.Billy Butler vs Nick Hagadone, 453 feet (July 26th)

The homer you’ll see next actually looked more impressive than this homer by Butler, but traveled a slightly shorter distance. At any rate…Billy’s back!

2. Billy Butler vs John Axford, 451 feet (July 25th)

When you think about moon shot home runs…you think about blasts like this. High, deep, and nearly out of the stadium. Whew.

3t. Jose Abreu vs Kevin Correia, 431 feet (July 25th)

Seeing this happen at Target Field just makes me upset that Jose Abreu wasn’t in the Home Run Derby. Thanks for bringing back those bad memories, Jose.

3t. Jason Castro vs Jesse Chavez, 431 feet (July 28th)

Who would have thought if you go to an Astros game and are hanging out in right center field, you might get a chance at a baseball?

5. Rene Rivera vs Mike Minor, 430 feet (July 27th)

Rivera really put a charge into this pitch from Minor. But considering how many home runs Minor is allowing this year, how excited should we really get?

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)
