Garrett Jones Launches 463-Foot Home Run Into Allegheny River

Garrett Jones has some power hitting capabilities and they were on display Sunday at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park. Garrett Jones who plays first base for the Pirates first baseman launched a massive 463-foot home run directly into the Allegheny River, which had only been done once prior. He’s the second hitter to ever launch a ball that landed in the river on the fly. Somehow the home run was only the 10th longest of the season, but the splash added a bit of pomp and circumstance. The home run would also end up being the difference in the Pirates’ 5-4 win over the Reds.
