This year we are going to the longest home runs of the week being twice a month. There are a few home runs missing from the list over the last two weeks that I should be getting information on in the future. So this list could be updated in the future.

There have been two weeks so far in May of baseball and we have distances for 23 home runs. One of those home runs is the new longest home run of the year. Last week Brandon Dixon hit a baseball in Louisville 446 feet. It was absolutely crushed and tops the 441 foot shot hit by Dilson Herrera earlier this season. Take a look at it below:

There were a few home runs hit by Pensacola Blue Wahoos last week that the camera crew just flat out missed. And then there was one hit by Aristides Aquino that he hit out of the ballpark, on the road, that I am hoping to get more information on. From the sounds of it, it isn’t going to compete for the longest of the year, but it likely topped 400 feet, too. That could put it into the Top 10 for the season.
