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.
Cameron Maybin (San Diego Padres) - 485 feet
Might as well kick things off with the longest home run of the (mid-way) 2012 season; a 485-foot tape measure shot by Cameron Maybin of the Padres. While he is not known for his prodigious power (only four dings on the year), Maybin has a long stride that often results in moon shots. And you literally need to hit it to the moon when playing your home games in the notoriously spacious Petco Park.
