The Best Home Runs (So Far) of 2012
Chicks aren't the only ones who dig the long ball. In honor of the Home Run Derby, we recap the best dingers so far of 2012.
Curtis Granderson (New York Yankees) - 378 feet, 352 feet, 336 feet
Ryan Braun wasn’t the only slugger to go “happy-go-jacky, like a donkey eating a waffle” in April this season. On April 19 at Yankee Stadium, Curtis Granderson showed a relentless urge to hit everything out of the park, and did almost that, turning his first three at-bats into home runs—all within the first four innings of the game. (He went on to finish 5-5.) The All-Star starting outfielder has been a Ruthian power presence in New York over the past three seasons, and is pacing the Bronx Bombers again this year with 23 home runs at the break.
