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.
Matt Kemp (Los Angeles Dodgers) - 454 feet
2012 started off with a bang for 2011 NL MVP runner-up Matt Kemp, who parlayed his dream season into a .417 average and 12 home runs this April. Unfortunately, a pesky hamstring injury has kept Kemp on the DL since late May, and the All-Star sit-out is currently stuck on just 12 home runs. While he won’t play in the actual game, Kemp has decided to remain captain of the NL squad in the Home Run Derby, where he will attempt numerous bombs similar to this 454-foot behemoth off Brandon Beachy (in the rain, mind you).
