The 21 Longest Home Runs in Modern Baseball History

Moon shots. Long balls. Big flies. Bombs. No matter what you call them, these monstrous home runs left both players and fans in awe.

Exit Velocity: 107.8 mph

Launch Angle: 26.9 degrees

Max Height: 102 feet

While Mazara might be impressed by Gallo's power, he technically has bragging rights over his teammate.

Why? Because the longest home run of his career was estimated by Statcast to be one foot further than the longest home run of Gallo's career.

Mazara's moonshot came off an 83-mph meatball from Hector Santiago in August of 2016.

It's estimated to be the farthest home run in Globe Life Park history.

When asked for his thoughts on the blast after the game, Mazara said he simply "put a good swing on it." 

If only it was that easy for the rest of us.

The 23-year-old Mazara blasted 20 home runs in each of his first two MLB seasons, so don't be surprised if he eventually develops into one of the game's premier power hitters.
