I don't think I could even touch a 95-mph fastball.

Kris Bryant can send them almost 500 feet in the opposite direction.

At 33.2 degrees, this moon shot has the highest launch angle of any home run on our list.

But Bryant hasn't always been a home run hitter.

When he was at the University of San Diego, he often had trouble elevating the ball. The result was a lot of very hard hit grounders.

To combat this, he began sinking into a more crouched position in his batting stance. That allowed the 6-foot-5 Bryant to more easily get underneath the ball on his swing, resulting in more home runs.

Bryant has averaged 31.33 home runs per season since he entered the MLB in 2015.
