The longest homers for the week ending July 3rd

Before you get your Fourth of July festivities underway, why not take a look at some of these fireworks? By now, I’m sure you know who’s going to be at the top of this list, given the massive freakout surrounding his epic blast last week. But who will fill in the list behind our new kingpin?

1. Mike Trout vs Jason Vargas, 489 feet (June 27th)

I have nothing to say. This was disgusting. Mike Trout, you are A MAN.

2. Jose Bautista vs Marco Estrada, 450 feet (July 1st)

Happy Canada Day, you guys. Do what you do, Joey Bats.

3. Sean Rodriguez vs Shawn Kelley, 445 feet (July 2nd)

Sure, the new Yankee Stadium doesn’t have the same cavernous dimensions as the old Yankee Stadium. That doesn’t mean that Sean Rodriguez *didn’t* put a charge into this ball.

4. Mike Olt vs Brandon Workman, 443 feet (July 2nd)

Lots of guys hit homers over the Green Monster. However, not a lot of players hit one over the Green Monster that close to center field – this was a monstrous smash by Olt.

5. Alex Avila vs Scott Feldman, 436 feet (June 29th)

Yep, that’s a shot off of the second deck. Alex Avila has had a rough year so far, but if he can keep smashing homers like this…

Five longest homers of the year
