  2. How is Davis/Doolittle not #1? He hit it 50 feet over the fence in Oakland with one hand to break an 8th inning tie.

  3. I was looking more at the context of the hitter/pitcher matchup more than the game context. But there’s a strong argument for any of these homers. They were all pretty awesome.

  4. Yes. I know this.

  5. Biased Giants fan… But Brandon Belt in the 8th inning against Arizona. Giants down by 2 runs (score was 6-4). Two out. Two runners on. 0-2 count. Smashes three run homer for the lead.

  6. B.J. Upton has a hit this year? Color me skeptical…

  8. It wasn’t an 0-2 count, but I have to say that the craziest display of pure hitting that I can remember, at least in terms of a home run ball, belongs to Manny Ramirez. He had come into the game with the bases loaded as a pinch hitter in the 6th inning. He didn’t take any warmup swings in the on deck circle (sadly the video does not show this)and he had never faced the pitcher on the mound. Manny goes up, first pitch….well watch the video because my paltry vocabulary cannot provide an adequate description of this scenario of events:

  10. “Feet” should be “feat”. (Sorry, had to.)

    This is good stuff, I hope we see more of this kind of interactive chart in the future.

  11. I didn’t know “blapped” was a word, but I’m going to start using it now.

  12. This article contains, by far, my favorite usage of the word “blapped.”

  13. Woodrum, the charts. My God, the charts. They warm the cockles. Even the sub cockles.

  14. Should have done this last year. Noesi is the king of grooving 0-2 pitches. He gave up so many 0-2 homers it became a meme amongst Mariner fans AND died.

  15. NitroZone® is a veterinary wound dressing. Maybe Braun did gash the Shark on that one?

  16. And people laughed when he took time this offseason to learn how to run. Now if he can just learn how to make outfielders fall down regularly, he’ll be onto something.

  17. “Color”

  18. This inspired me to look something up. Bengie Molina hit six career triples. Bengie freakin’ Molina. Wow.

    Comment by Ian R. — May 3, 2013 @ 7:42 pm

  19. Bengie hit for the cycle at Fenway with one of those triples.
