Pence and His Monster Bomb
Hunter Pence hit the longest home run of the season last night: 476 feet. That’s a foot further than Mark Trumbo hit one back on April 29th. I’ve always wondered how they calculate a *true distance* bomb. It shouldn’t be that difficult, especially with today’s technology. ESPN has now partnered with someone named Greg Rybarczyk–anyone with a last name so difficult to spell is probably very good at math and other calculations, right?
Anyway, I’ve never been to this website but it’s very cool. They calculate the distance of every home run hit in the major leagues. There’s more info than you could possibly ever want to process. And if you want to process none of it, they just give you the link to the video.
