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
Josh Hamilton: 469 feet on Tuesday
J.D. Drew: 460 feet on July 26, 2008
Manny Ramirez: 460 feet on April 22, 2007
Garrett Jones: 460 feet on September 27, 2007
