"Mike Piazza, Coors Field, Sept. 26, 1997"
On September 26, 1997, Mike Piazza hit the longest home run ever at Coors Field. Piazza's Los Angeles Dodgers visited the Colorado Rockies, trailing the San Francisco Giants by two games with just three games to play in the 1997 season. In the 6th inning, Piazza hammered a hanging breaking ball to deep left-center field for a two-run homer, extending the Dodgers lead to 6-1 and helping keep their season alive with a win (the Giants also won and clinched the next day.) Piazza's homer soared high in the thin Denver air, cleared the bleachers and landed well onto on the concourse behind the seats. The ball was struck in 65 degree, calm weather at an angle of approximately 29 degrees, coming off the bat at 118 mph. The Rockies credited Piazza with a 496 foot home run, but their procedure for measuring home runs at the time did not attempt to include the additional distance the ball would have flown had it not landed on the concourse. ESPN's Stats & Info Group marks the landing point at 496 feet from home plate and 26 feet above field level; the projected final distance of this historic home run is 515 feet! Truly a blast worthy of a Hall of Famer!
