Reds Minor Leagues Longest Homers of June Doug Gray July 7, 2018 4 Comments With the way that things worked out in the month of June for my, there was no longest home run update for the month at any point. I usually do one at the midway point of the month, and then at the end. Things got busy and I simply didn’t keep up. We are now a week into July and I just got caught up to the end of June. Not all of the home runs hit during the month were tracked. Video guys/gals missed six home runs, and the ball simply couldn’t be tracked beyond the wall for a few more. But, I was able to get distances on 67 home runs for the month. The longest home run hit in June goes to D.J. Peterson on June 19th for Louisville. It came in at 441 feet – 1 foot further than the one hit by Ibandel Isabel on June 28th for Daytona. http://redsminorleagues.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DJ-Peterson.mp4 It was a big month for long home runs on the Cincinnati Reds farm system. There were 31 home runs hit that went at least 400 feet during the month. Here’s the top 40 home runs for June: Date Player Distance 19-Jun DJ Peterson 441 28-Jun Ibandel Isabel 440 21-Jun Pabel Manzanero 434 1-Jun Ibandel Isabel 432 9-Jun Gabby Guerrero 431 23-Jun Gavin LaValley 425 27-Jun DJ Peterson 424 1-Jun Ibandel Isabel 421 23-Jun Taylor Sparks 420 29-Jun Mason Williams 419 28-Jun Brantley Bell 418 1-Jul Rylan Thomas 416 6-Jun Ibandel Isabel 416 21-Jun Nick Senzel 409 12-Jun Taylor Sparks 408 29-Jun DJ Peterson 407 6-Jun Brian O’Grady 407 19-Jun Steve Selsky 404 9-Jun Narciso Crook 404 8-Jun Ibandel Isabel 404 5-Jun Bruce Yari 404 27-Jun Andy Sugilio 403 3-Jun Ibandel Isabel 403 29-Jun Mitch Nay 402 21-Jun Debby Santana 402 13-Jun Gabby Guerrero 402 28-Jun Raul Wallace 401 27-Jun Phillip Ervin 401 13-Jun Mason Williams 401 16-Jun Aristides Aquino 400 15-Jun Pabel Manzanero 400 24-Jun DJ Peterson 397 30-Jun Ernesto Liberatore 395 24-Jun Mason Williams 394 15-Jun Stuart Fairchild 392 3-Jun Andy Sugilio 392 19-Jun Shed Long 391 3-Jun Michael Beltre 391 5-Jun Tony Cruz 389 27-Jun Hendrik Clementina 387 June provided several home runs that crept into the Top 10 for the season. It also becomes quickly apparent that baseballs like to travel 431 feet.

Don’t avoid the swear filter. kevinz July 7, 2018 SUAREZ wooo that was smoked . Doug Gray July 7, 2018 He’s pretty good at hitting baseballs. kevinz July 7, 2018 He sure is Doug he is a Self made Player. He was always a tough Out in the Minors. Now he is a Tough out with Patience and Power in the Bigs. Suarez is usually smart aggressive as well. He knows when to attack when to have a Long grind it out AB.
