"Richie Sexson, Bank One Ballpark, April 26, 2004"
On April 26, 2004, Richie Sexson made a mark for himself in the history of Chase Field (then Bank One Ballpark) - well, actually he made a mark ON the park, specifically the video board in center field. Sexson blasted a ball to deep center field that was reported to have traveled 503 feet, but Hit Tracker analysis supports a slightly lesser distance for this monumental blast. Sexson's homer struck the video board at a spot 410 feet from home plate, 75 feet above field level, with a time of flight of 4.94 seconds. The reconstructed trajectory shown here reveals that the ball left the bat at 113 mph at an angle of 27 degrees, and would have traveled 482 feet if it had been allowed to return to field level unobstructed.
