486 feet. Officially, that’s the longest home run ever hit at Minute Maid Park in Houston…a solo shot by Prince Fielder back in 2011.
Billy Butler’s blast Monday night against the Astros might just have it beat. While the official distance hasn’t been tallied (yet), I’m guessing the Oakland A’s slugger’s bomb landed somewhere outside of Austin.
And, yeah, before you watch the video, know this…it did clear those railroad tracks in deep left.
