1. Correa 474ft
2. Griffey / Strawberry 465ft
3. Pedro Munoz 463ft
4. Jeffrey Hammonds 460ft
5. Mo Vaughn 457ft
6. Eric Davis 452ft

Glad to see Jeffrey Hammonds on there.

Who the hell is Pedro Munoz?

I think @SteveA was on the right path.  It wasn't pulled enough for it to have gone to the Warehouse, it'd have been out towards Boog's.  

Had it gone down the line to RF, it might have gotten there.  Hard to say.  Correa should get a plaque for that one.

I'm of the opinion that if it hasn't been hit now, no one's ever gonna hit it.  We've seen the steroid era come and go since 1992, we've also seen a jackrabbit ball this year.  No one's really come close.  In a way, I'm glad that Griffey Jr. during the HR derby is the only one that has, seems kinda perfect.  It'd be weird if it was, like, Lee Stevens that was the guy that hit the Warehouse.

While we're talking about massive OPACY homers, I remember Mo Vaughn hitting one that reached under the jumbotron.  

You might be right. We haven't had many left handed power hitters with THAT kind of power on our team over the years, though. Davis's blasts were more high than far, but far enough. At least, it seemed that way.

I remember that guy.  I refuse to believe he hit one of the longest homers at OPACY.  I think @Sessh meant Pedro Alvarez or something.

That's true, but we've also seen some all time great lefty power hitters come through here over the years.  I mean, if Griffey can only do it in a derby, what's that say about anyone else's chances?  Not even the one he hit off Pennington hit the Warehouse.

Also, that list of longest homers says something about the quality of our pitching for the majority of the time that OPACY has been open, I feel.

All of those were hit in the 90's, though. Davis and Griffey in 1993, Munoz and Vaughn hit theirs in 1996, Hammonds in 1997 and Strawberry in 1998. That list hasn't been changed until Correa's blast tonight.

Yep one hopper against the batters eye off of Mike Mussina of all pitchers I believe.

Griffey off Pennington.  IIRC, Nike used this in a commercial at one point.

 

Aside from his perfect swing and the nostalgia that comes along with it, my favorite thing here is the way that Pennington is looking up like "jeez,  I can't believe he hit that."

C'mon dude, you missed your spot by about a foot and left it in the middle of the plate.

Mancini doesn’t get to another one that was catchable.

Was wondering. Not that fast and I doubt his route was efficient.

    • You are right. There will be baseball when profits can be made again.
    • I think you will be seeing “essential” workers begin to be vaccinated by Feb-March.  December and January will be healthcare workers and the elderly but this makes up probably less than 25 percent of the population. 
    • Umm..yes, you are wrong.  Several teams treat the position as of its a full time position.  That at bat stats is a fact you can’t argue against.  That’s the definition of “full time”.    
    • March should be early enough to book your flight and hotel.
    • I wonder if they would still be on the hook for the entire salary if they waited til after a potential announcement of a shortened season?
    • Nah, I’m not wrong. however, If I may my father’s comment half way through a performance of Mahler 8: ” well, I’ve had about as much of this as I can stand. Let’s go find something interesting to eat.“ And that is what I am going to do… God bless you and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    • I posted way back at the beginning of the thread that I thought it was possible Nunez had another level of improvement left in him.   If I’m guessing (which is all it is), I think Hays and Santander will be better hitters than Nunez at their respective peaks.    But I don’t know it for sure.   It’s sort of a moot point since we agree Nunez isn’t really competing with those two for at bats.   As to Stewart, I’m guessing he will not turn out to be as good a hitter as Nunez, though I’m not sure about that, either.
