Longest Home Runs of the Hit Tracker Era

One of the great baseball sites on the net is Greg Rybarczyk’s Hit Tracker, which uses physics, statistics and automated spreadsheet design to track true home run distance and includes video of the homer.  Rybarczyk’s data is complete through the 2006 season and also includes some homers from 2005.  Using information from that site, here are the Top 10 Longest Home Runs in the Hit Tracker era.

Who the hell is Wladimir Balentien?

Latin American outifelder signed to a minor league contract by the M's maybe 7-8 years ago, seemed like a prospect while coming thru the minors, never given a real chance in the Seattle OF, jerked around for a couple years getting maybe 200 ABs a year, then traded to the Reds for nothing last year and disappeared there too.

Wow, he's been a pro for 10 years already. Although he didn't start playing in the org til 2003 so I give myself credit for that one. My timeline's a little mixed up, but still fairly impressed with myself. I didn't realize he hadn't even had a ML AB this year. Wow, .230/.294/.425 at Louisville, as a 25-year old. That's not very good at all.
