What happens when you take Giancarlo Stanton's mind-blowing power and put it inside Coors Field?

You get the only home run of the Statcast era to surpass the 500-foot mark.

Why do balls seem to fly farther at Coors Field?

At 5,200 feet above sea level, Coors Field has the highest elevation of any MLB ballpark (the second-highest, Chase Field, stands at 1,100 feet). There's less air density at higher elevations, which means less drag on flying projectiles.

Thus, home runs tend to go farther.

And Giancarlo Stanton doesn't usually need any help to get the ball over the fence.

Three current Yankees appear on our list, making them the team to watch if you're a fan of mammoth home runs.
