Nomar Mazara Just Hit the Longest Home Run of the Year

Baseball Is Fun

In writing any one of these posts, I have to select a category that describes the content therein. This allows readers to find certain types of posts later down the line, by filtering for particular categories.

The category for this very post, for example, is simply: Homers. But that’s my problem. Just labeling this “Homers,” isn’t enough. It doesn’t do it justice. It doesn’t describe the distance and punishment Nomar Mazara put into a home run he hit today against the Angels:

That ball was absolutely crushed!

Mazara hit the ball 108 MPH off the bat, forcing it to travel 491 feet into the upper deck at Globe Life Park. That homer, his eighth, represents the longest of the season so far, and stands a chance to hold up all year long (for reference, last year’s record was set by Kris Bryant at 495 feet).
