Mike Napoli hit a baseball very, very far Tuesday night, but it paled in comparison up against the ball hit by Giants outfielder Hunter Pence. Pence hit the farthest home run of the 2013 season Tuesday night, and he did it (of course) at Coors Field in Colorado. The outfielder lifted off for a 476-foot blast to left field in baseball’s friendliest hitter’s park, a blast that cleared the left-field seats. According to ESPN’s Home Run Tracker, the blast just beats out the previous longest home runs of the season. Mark Trumbo and Anthony Rizzo have both hit 475-foot blasts. Napoli, whose majestic shot against Baltimore on Tuesday night went 432 feet, also hit a ball 472 feet in May. See Pence’s blast below. Your browser does not support iframes.

The longest homer of this season has been hit by...Hunter Pence?!

Everyone loves long homers. The longest homer of the 2013 season (so far) was hit last night at Coors Field (because of course jt was).

Giants' Pence goes really, really deep in 5-3 win at Colorado

The Giants made history last year when winning the World Series. If they don't improve in the standings they'll make history again for all the wrong reasons. They could become just the second team since the World Series was created to follow a championship with a last-place finish. The only team to finish last a year after winning a World Series was the 1998 Marlins and...

Pablo Sandoval does pregame dance with Hunter Pence (Video)

San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has some special handshakes with teammates as part of his pregame routine, but probably none as elaborate and unusual as the dance with right fielder Hunter Pence which was captured on camera before Monday night's game at Coors Field.

Pence, Sandoval help Giants beat Rockies 5-3

Hunter Pence sidestepped questions about his home run, the one that cleared the top row of seats in left field. No, he didn't hear anything special when the ball made contact with his bat in the first inning. And no, he didn't realize it was going to travel an extra-long way. Pence wanted to avoid that topic all together after the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado...

Mike Napoli Punishes Baseball, Hits Monster Home Run in Blowout Win Over Orioles (Video)

We’re used to seeing home runs hit over the Green Monster at Fenway Park and onto Lansdowne Street. What we’re not used to seeing, though, is someone hitting a ball where Mike Napoli did Tuesday night. The Red Sox first baseman hit a ball Tuesday night that just about reached Kenmore Square. Napoli absolutely obliterated a 2-2 offering from Wei-Yin Chen that cleared the Green...

Hello, Mr. Selig? Are you there? Can somebody pick up! Do you know that a Redsock is dating a porn star?
