Good Lord. You don't see too many guys get that kind of distance off a breaking ball....had to be 450-plus.

Not quite the shot that Pujols hit in the 2005 NLCS, but pretty damn impressive. Too bad it's for a team that totally blows.

It's so weird to see a guy hit a massive homerun and not do some chest pound, kiss, point to the sky thing when they step on home plate.

It was estimated on ESPN to be 463 feet. He's definitely got some power.

So does everyone else. That man doesn't deserve to be anywhere near a baseball team.

Anyway, damn, that was impressive.

They circle the wagons to keep guys like Mark Cuban from owning a baseball team but Loria has been allowed to buy and destroy two teams. (Expos + Marlins)

It was awkward looking swing too. Good lord.

The most impressive home run hitter who ever played for Loria is still Vlad Guerrero.
