Longest home runs for every MLB team

Statcast measures farthest blast since 2015 for all 30 clubs

April 9th, 2021

Ever since Babe Ruth launched Major League Baseball into the Live Ball Era with his awe-inspiring home runs, wowed fans have been asking: "How far did that ball go?"

Statcast has given us a whole new tool to answer that question, thanks to the tracking technology at every MLB ballpark.

Here are the longest homers hit by each of the 30 MLB clubs since Statcast began tracking home run distances at the start of the 2015 season.

American League East

Blue Jays: -- July 20, 2016 at ARI; -- June 25, 2018 at HOU
Distance: 471 feet (Watch them: Encarnación; Grichuk)
Both of these big flies were demolished. Edwin walked the parrot with a monster blast to left-center at Chase Field back in 2016, a few months before his memorable walk-off in the AL Wild Card Game. Grichuk equaled that 471-foot distance two seasons later with a towering shot over the train tracks at Minute Maid Park. Full Blue Jays leaderboard

Orioles: -- May 24, 2019 at COL
Distance: 474 feet (Watch it)
The Orioles have had their share of big sluggers in recent years, but it was Broxton who jumped to the top of the leaderboard with one swing -- his first swing in an O's uniform, on the first pitch he saw. Broxton's homer to the concourse at Coors Field traveled a projected 474 feet. Full Orioles leaderboard

Rays: -- May 14, 2019 at MIA
Distance: 485 feet (Watch it)
It took a long time for anybody to break J.P. Arencibia's mark of 464 feet, set back in 2015. García finally set a new Rays record by demolishing a pitch way over the center-field wall in Miami -- also by far the longest homer by a visiting player at Marlins Park since '15. The 112.9 mph blast isn't the only 480-footer García has hit -- he has the record for another AL team, too. Full Rays leaderboard

Red Sox: -- Aug. 27, 2019 at COL
Distance: 478 feet (Watch it)
Before this, Hanley Ramirez held the mark for longest Red Sox homer at 469 feet in April 2017. But then Bradley Jr. stepped to the plate in Colorado and rocketed this pitch 112.1 mph over the right-field fence, going 478 feet into the night. Full Red Sox leaderboard

Yankees: -- Sept. 30, 2017 vs. TOR
Distance: 496 feet (Watch it)
Judge crushed two home runs clear over the Yankee Stadium bleachers in 2017. This one was the 52nd and last of his AL Rookie of the Year-winning season, a 118.3 mph, 496-foot monster shot to left-center off then-Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman. It gets the edge by a single foot over the 118.6 mph, 495-foot home run Judge crushed that June off the Orioles' Logan Verrett. Those were the two longest homers in MLB in 2017 and two of the longest in Statcast history. Full Yankees leaderboard

AL Central

Indians: -- June 20, 2017 at BAL
Distance: 466 feet (Watch it)
Encarnación doesn't just hold the Blue Jays' Statcast home run distance record. He's in sole possession of the Indians' longest blast thanks to this 110.9 mph, 466-foot shot he crushed to the upper deck at Camden Yards off a hanging slider from Chris Tillman. It was his 17th of 38 home runs that season. Full Indians leaderboard

Royals: -- July 1, 2017 vs. MIN
Distance: 474 feet (Watch it)
Moss left his mark during his lone season in Kansas City, golfing this pitch to help spur a four-run comeback for the home side against the rival Twins. Moss retired the following spring, but his power clearly remained in his bat until the end. Full Royals leaderboard

Tigers: -- July 21, 2015 vs. SEA; -- July 15, 2019 at CLE
Distance: 467 feet (Watch them: Martinez; Candelario)
Martinez one-upped Seattle slugger Nelson Cruz, who hit a 455-foot homer in the top half of the same inning, with this impressive blast to straightaway center at cavernous Comerica Park in the first season of Statcast tracking. Candelario tied Martinez with a long home run into the bullpens in right-center field in Cleveland four years later. Full Tigers leaderboard

Twins: -- Sept. 17, 2019 vs. CWS
Distance: 496 feet (Watch it)
Sanó got absolutely all of this one. The Bomba Squad slugger made the Twins the first team ever with five 30-homer hitters with a mammoth 113.5 mph, 496-foot blast to the upper deck at Target Field. All you had to do was see the look on White Sox pitcher Ross Detwiler's face as he hung his head and put his hands on his knees to know how far this one went. Full Twins leaderboard

White Sox: -- Oct. 1, 2020 at OAK
Distance: 487 feet (Watch it)
We all knew by this point that Robert had incredible raw power. But this shot at the Oakland Coliseum left us awe-struck anyway. In Game 3 of the 2020 AL Wild Card Series against the A's, Robert demolished a Mike Fiers pitch in the second inning into the far reaches of the left-field bleachers, giving the White Sox a 1-0 lead in a game Chicago would ultimately lose, 6-4. Yermín Mercedes gets an honorable mention here for the club's longest regular-season homer since 2015, blasting a 485-foot shot against the Royals at Guaranteed Rate Field on April 8, 2021. Full White Sox leaderboard

AL West

Angels: -- Sept. 5, 2019 at OAK
Distance: 486 feet (Watch it)
Trout got ahold of this one and A's lefty Brett Anderson knew it, jumping up and then quickly crouching down on the mound as Trout's 45th home run of the season sailed all the way over the batter's eye facade in dead center in Oakland. Trout's home run had an exit velocity of 111.1 mph and broke his previous Angels distance record of 477 feet from 2015. Full Angels leaderboard

Astros: -- May 7, 2018 at OAK
Distance: 476 feet (Watch it)
Springer almost crushed this ball straight into one of the tunnels between sections of the left-center-field seats in Oakland -- and just in case you didn't know, those sections of the seats are way above the field. The Astros record-setting shot was also part of a historic 6-for-6 game for Springer, who became the first Astros player to collect six hits in a nine-inning game. Full Astros leaderboard

Athletics: -- Sept. 15, 2016 at KC
Distance: 480 feet (Watch it)
Healy holds the edge for the A's longest homer by five feet over Matt Olson, who hit a 475-foot home run with his sweet left-handed swing on May 31, 2018. Healy brought the lumber from the right side against the Royals' Edinson Vólquez, crushing a 111.6 mph, 480-foot home run over the fountains in left-center field at Kauffman Stadium. Full A's leaderboard

Mariners: -- Sept. 13, 2017 at TEX; June 29, 2018 vs. KC
Distance: 470 feet (Watch them: HR #1; HR #2)
Zunino crushed two 470-foot home runs during his time in Seattle, so he shares the team distance record with himself. Zunino belted his first 470-footer to the upper deck in left field in Texas. The next season, he knocked one at home, this time going to the upper deck at Safeco Field. Full Mariners leaderboard

Rangers: -- June 21, 2019 vs. CWS
Distance: 505 feet (Watch it)
Mazara set the MLB Statcast record for home run distance -- not just the Rangers' -- and joined Giancarlo Stanton in the 500-foot club with this rocket to the upper reaches of the upper deck in right field in Arlington. On a team with Joey Gallo, it takes a monster home run to set the record, and Mazara provided it.

"That was a bomb, a complete bomb," teammate Elvis Andrus said. "I think it was more than 505 feet. It more like 600 feet. It was really loud." Full Rangers leaderboard

National League East

Braves: -- Sept. 25, 2020 vs. BOS
Distance: 495 feet (Watch it)
The Braves' young superstar got his team's final series of the season started with a bang as he crushed a leadoff home run off Boston's Chris Mazza that landed way up in the concourse behind the left-field stands at Truist Park. Acuña had already previously set the Braves' distance record in 2020, when he went 473 feet off Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. Full Braves leaderboard

Marlins: -- Aug. 6, 2016 at COL
Distance: 504 feet (Watch it)
Stanton is one of the few people capable of crushing a 500-foot home run. His 504-footer at Coors Field came a year before his 59-homer MVP season in 2017, but Stanton has shown plenty of times before and since this home run that he can clear the fence by a long, long way. Full Marlins leaderboard

Mets: -- July 17, 2019 at MIN
Distance: 489 feet (Watch it)
A little over a week after winning the Home Run Derby in Cleveland, Alonso broke Michael Conforto's club record of 472 feet, set the previous season. Alonso already crushed plenty of impressive shots in his rookie year, and he added to his resume against Twins reliever Matt Magill, sending a slider 110.9 mph and 489 feet to left at Target Field. The awe-inspiring two-run shot soared about halfway up the third deck. Full Mets leaderboard

Nationals: -- Aug. 20, 2015, at COL
Distance: 493 feet (Watch it)
Rockies starter Yohan Flande was cruising against the Nationals until Taylor gave his club a game-tying lift on this blast to left-center. Even in the friendly Coors Field environment, Taylor's 110.1 mph exit velocity meant this home run was no joke. Full Nationals leaderboard

Phillies: -- July 10, 2016, at COL
Distance: 471 feet (Watch it)
Rockies reliever Jason Motte attempted to go up and in on Franco with a fastball, but the Phillies third baseman was ready. Franco turned on the pitch and pulled it into the high altitude at Coors Field for a long line-drive homer. Bryce Harper hit a 470-foot home run in 2020, but Franco still holds the team record by a foot. Full Phillies leaderboard

NL Central

Brewers: -- April 20, 2017 vs. STL
Distance: 478 feet (Watch it)
Miller Park is built for lefty power hitters, and Shaw provided Exhibit A. Early in the 2017 season, Shaw leaned into a hanging changeup from Cardinals starter Carlos Martínez and drilled a 113.7 mph home run off the Miller Lite Deck sign in right-center field. That's the facing of the third deck in Milwaukee. Full Brewers leaderboard

Cardinals: -- Sept. 12, 2019 at COL
Distance: 487 feet (Watch it)
Ravelo logged a whopping 838 games over parts of 10 Minor League seasons before he was finally called up in June 2019, and he made the most of his opportunity by hammering a massive Coors Field blast less than three months later. Ravelo's drive went most of the way up the seats in left-center. Full Cardinals leaderboard

Cubs: -- Oct. 18, 2017 vs. Dodgers (NLCS Game 4)
Distance: 491 feet (Watch it)
The Cubs' longest home run in the regular season is a 481-footer by El Mago, Javier Báez, on Aug. 23, 2018. But Contreras went even deeper than Baez in the 2017 playoffs against the Dodgers. Contreras crushed a home run high off the Wrigley Field scoreboard in left field to open the scoring in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. That 491-footer is the longest homer hit by a Cubs player under Statcast tracking, regular season or postseason, and the longest home run hit in the MLB postseason overall since 2015. Full Cubs leaderboard

Pirates: -- Oct. 4, 2015, vs. CIN
Distance: 479 feet (Watch it)
Pittsburgh's hulking slugger decided the right-field seats at PNC Park weren't enough on the final day of the 2015 regular season, instead clearing the bleachers completely and depositing this ball into the Allegheny River. Alvarez's uppercut swing demolished the pitch with a 115.4 mph exit velocity. Full Pirates leaderboard

Reds: -- Aug. 10, 2019 vs. CHC
Distance: 469 feet (Watch it)
The Punisher also hit the hardest home run of the 2019 MLB season (his 118.3 mph homer on Aug. 8 tied him with Pete Alonso and Gary Sánchez), but his longest home run came two days later -- and capped a huge three-home-run game for the rookie sensation. Aquino turned on a 97 mph fastball from the Cubs' Dillon Maples that was right down Broadway and crushed it off the facing of the second deck in deep, deep left-center field at Great American Ball Park. Full Reds leaderboard

NL West

D-backs: -- June 2, 2019 vs. NYM
Distance: 482 feet (Watch it)
Marte's leadoff home run in an early-June series finale against the Mets at Chase Field was an absolute rocket: 111.9 mph and 482 feet to left-center. It went clear over the first level of seats and landed in the concourse above. Marte surpassed Jake Lamb's 481-foot homer on April 29, 2017 by a single foot to set the D-backs record. Full D-backs leaderboard

Dodgers: -- June 2, 2015 at COL
Distance: 477 feet (Watch it)
It's no surprise that the Dodgers hit their longest homer at Coors Field: a majestic blast by Pederson way up into the center-field bleachers. Pederson then hit a second 470-footer on this same day -- he hit one 472 feet in the other half of the Dodgers' doubleheader against the Rockies. He's the only player with two 470-foot homers in the same day since Statcast started tracking. Full Dodgers leaderboard

Giants: -- Sept. 1, 2020 at COL
Distance: 480 feet (Watch it)
Dickerson went to the upper, upper deck at Coors Field -- yes, the third deck, at the very top of the right-field stands, to open September 2020 by setting a new Giants record with a 480-foot home run. The Giants' previous longest home run was also at Coors -- that was a 475-footer by Brandon Belt all the way back on May 22, 2015, the first year of Statcast tracking. Five-plus years later, San Francisco got a new No. 1. Full Giants leaderboard

Padres: -- April 20, 2018 at ARI
Distance: 489 feet (Watch it)
Franchy absolutely crushed this one: 116.3 mph and 489 feet. The Padres slugger hit it off the scoreboard in dead center at Chase Field. That scoreboard is way above the playing field, and Franchy's homer hit way up on the scoreboard. Cordero obliterated the Padres' previous best of 461 feet, which had been set by Wil Myers the previous September. And though fellow big slugger Franmil Reyes hit a few homers in Franchy territory afterwards, even Franmil's longest as a Padre was "only" 479. Full Padres leaderboard

Rockies: -- Sept. 5, 2018 vs. SF
Distance: 487 feet (Watch it)
Of all the Rockies' blasts at Coors Field since Statcast began tracking in 2015, this one was the biggest: 111.9 mph and 487 feet. Story went beyond deep -- completely over the stands and onto the concourse in left field. The team record-setting blast was Story's 30th home run of the season and part of a three-homer game for the Rockies' star shortstop. Full Rockies leaderboard
