According to Hittrackeronline.com, Wlad's HR last night went 495 feet and was the longest HR of the year, as well as the fastest HR off the bat this year. That is far.
It was crazy. Watching live.....I thought he swung and missed as you couldn't see the ball leave the bat it was so violently fast.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
I missed the game but checked out the highlight of that shot. Wow...that was a blast!
"Bring on Rod Stupid!"
yeah, you can see the HR on reds.com.
what a shot!
I was there last night and when that ball was it, the crowd had no doubt that it was out of there. We knew it was gone when he hit it and we were just waiting to see the distance. That ball was hit a TON. Wow. Dude has some power!

Would anyone happen to be able to post a link for me? The reds.com site doesn't work so well on the old blackberry.
