Home runs are an exciting part of baseball. It’s difficult to hit one, but when it’s done, there’s no better feeling than blasting that ball out of the park. The longest home run is credited to Mickey Mantle, the distance is said to be somewhere near 630 ft. That impressive number is nearly impossible to beat, there’s a few players who have come close. Here’s eight of the longest home runs ever hit!
