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.
Ryan Braun (Milwaukee Brewers) - 417 feet, 416 feet, 381 feet
After an off-season marred by PED allegations, Ryan Braun dodged a bullet (i.e., a 50-game suspension) this year, and is clearly not letting any of the hoopla affect his game. After winning his first MVP award in 2011, Braun is on pace for a possible repeat, thanks in large part to his NL-leading 24 home runs. Three of those bombs came in one game on April 30, when Braun nailed his first career home run hat trick. Even more impressive, the “Hebrew Hammer” managed the feat at the cavernous Petco Park.
