This is the first year in which I’ve attempted to keep track of the distance of home runs hit by Cincinnati Reds minor leaguers. Thanks to almost every stadium now having the Trackman system installed that estimates the distances of batted balls, and video feeds for many of the ballparks, it was easier to do in 2017 than it would have been in the past. It was difficult to get information from some games involving Daytona, some games involving Dayton and most games in Billings. Still, I was able to get distances for 270 home runs.

The longest home run of the season that I was able to get a distance on, and the top three home runs were all verified by the Trackman system, went to Michael Beltre in late July. He hit the baseball entirely out of Fifth Third Field in Dayton and onto the street. Gavin LaValley had the longest home run for most of the season before that, hitting one 452 feet in Daytona. Late in the season Taylor Sparks made a run at his teammate’s mark, but came up three feet short in a road game against Lake County.

Here is the video of Michael Beltre’s system leading 453 foot home run.

 

Here is the entire list of 270 home runs that I was able to either get Trackman data on, or measure using video and google maps measuring tools on.

        Bro, I think you fail to see the reference. I’ll defer to Doug, ok? If the comment lacks class, please remove.
