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.
Prince Fielder (Detroit Tigers) - 440 feet
Similar to fellow league-jumper Albert Pujols, the AL has not been especially kind to Prince Fielder, who only has 15 home runs to his name heading into the All-Star break. Clearly that’s nothing to sneeze at, but Fielder surely misses the cozy confines of Miller Park (where he crushed it with regularity), compared to the more pitcher-friendly Comerica Park. Still, Fielder has plenty of time to play catch up, and will join Mark Trumbo on the AL Home Run Derby squad. Fielder always packs a punch with his vicious uppercut swing, and this wallop off Kyle Lohse is just plain silly.
