Josh Hamilton's blast deep by any standard

By Richard Durrett



No, it didn't land around Ted Williams' seat some 502 feet away from home plate, but Josh Hamilton's blast on Tuesday night was still a mammoth shot at Fenway Park. (Williams hit his in 1946 and a red seat marks the spot).

It was measured at 469 feet, which makes it the second-longest home run this season and the second-longest at Fenway Park since 2006 (the longest by a left-handed batter since then too).

Longest Home Runs at Fenway Park since 2006 (ESPN Stats & Information):

Vladimir Guerrero: 484 feet on July 30, 2006
