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.
Giancarlo Stanton (Florida Marlins) - 462 feet
There probably isn’t a hitter with as much pure power in the game as Giancarlo “Don’t Call Me Mike” Stanton, the Marlins’ 22-year-old phenom outfielder. Stanton has increased his power totals in all three of his big league seasons; he heads into the break with 19, despite hitting just one homer in April. In this at-bat, Stanton works a full-count against MLB fossil Jamie Moyer, before absolutely crushing a 462-foot grand slam against the left field scoreboard, slightly breaking it in the process. Unfortunately, knee surgery will keep Stanton on the shelf for over a month, costing him his first Home Run Derby.
