(Dead central power… Oof)
Minnesota Twins rookie Park Byung-ho, just blasted his 2nd homerun in his 9th game this season, and boy, it was a nooo doubter… The homerun distance was said to be 140.8 meters (462 feet). Park’s 462 ft solo homerun in the 8th inning will be the second longest homerun hit so far this season, with Nolan Arenado’s measured homerun distance of 462.2 feet being the longest currently. The homerun of Park today was also one of the longest homeruns hit in Target Field history, Park’s homerun will come in second with 462 feet…
Opened in year 2010… only 6 players, so far, have hit tape measured shots measuring 450 feet and above in Target Field… Alex Rodriguez last season (450 feet), Nelson Cruz (453 feet) in year 2011, Jim Thome (454 feet) also in year 2011, Jim Thome again (459 feet), in year 2012… Park Byung-ho today (462 feet), Jim Thome, AGAIN, but the longest… (464 feet) in year 2011.
In 9 games played so far this season, Park is currently hitting 6 for 31 (.194/.306/.757), hitting 2 homeruns and 2 extra base-hits (2 doubles) with 3 RBI’s… Park finished the game today going 1 for 3 with also a walk… 2 consecutive games now won by Minnesota!
