The Angels' Mark Trumbo has tremendous power, and the 27-year-old put that talent on display in Oakland on Monday night in an AL West divisional battle against the A's.

Trumbo absolutely destroyed an offering from Oakland's Dan Sally to give the Angels a 2-0 lead in the top of the second.

The bomb was estimated at 475 feet (and I personally think that estimation is a little short), tying Trumbo with the Cubs' Anthony Rizzo for the longest MLB home run so far in 2013. 

Trumbo now has four homers in the early going, after hitting 32 homers in 2012 and 29 homers in 2011.

  • Too bad your facts are wrong...Todd Frazier from my Cincinnati Reds hit a 480ft. bomb to dead center on Apr. 22. So this is a tie for second place.

  • According to http://www.hittrackeronline.com/top_true_distance.php,
    He is not on the list for that day. I am assuming this is where this guy got his stats. He does show up for a few other home runs but not the one you are referring to.
  • thank you mike19v ! I was going to correct them also !! Its too bad Fraze doesnt get the headlines or credit...GO REDS !!!

Mark Trumbo Launches a 475-foot Home Run

The Angels’ Mark Trumbo launched one of the longer home runs we have seen in some time on Monday night against the A’s.   Had to just watch in awe as the ball traveled an estimated 475 feet which is no easy feat.  The 27-year-old stud has got some power.  If accurate on the measurement, only Anthony Rizzo of the Cubbies has a long ball of that length this year.

Mark Trumbo's monstrous homer, and the joke of "estimated" measurements

Measuring home runs has proven over time to be an inexact science. You would think with the modern marvels of pitch and hit tracking, that we'd have a greater knowledge of home run distance, or even technology in place in every stadium/telecast that could enhance fans' viewing experience. This clearly isn't the case in Oakland. On Monday evening, Mark Trumbo hit a bomb...

Oakland fans honor Hamilton for error

Josh Hamilton might have been disappointed that he was booed in his return to Arlington earlier this month. He had to be downright puzzled by what happened in Oakland Monday. Hamilton was the lone Los Angeles player who was cheered during the marathon 10-8 Oakland win in 19 innings. The logic behind the cheering was simple it was Josh Hamilton Appreciation Night. A Facebook...

10 things to know about Howie Kendrick

Howie Kendrick made a mockery of minor league pitching as he climbed the ranks of the Angels organization from 2002-06. He flirted with .400 on occasion and never hit below .342 for a season in the minors. Hes been a steady bat in the Angels lineup through seven big league seasons, but theres more about him than just baseball. He learned to ride a bike at the age of two And...

Los Angeles Angels Option Pitcher Michael Roth

The Los Angeles Angels have optioned pitcher Michael Roth to Triple-A Salt Lake, their farm affiliate. Struggling this season, having allowed a 9.31 ERA, he was sent to the minors to try and find his groove and regain his confidence. There is a good chance that he will be back sooner or later with the parent club. The post Los Angeles Angels Option Pitcher Michael Roth appeared...

Josh Hamilton Honored by A’s Fans With Special Night, Butterfingers After Helping Oakland With Muffed Catch (Video)

Josh Hamilton may be struggling at the plate, but at least he’s still a good sport. Hamilton and his new team, the Angels, went to Oakland on Monday for a three-game set, and the A’s used the occasion to honor the player who has found a special place in their hearts. As a member of the Texas Rangers, Hamilton blew a catch in the final game of last year’s season to help Oakland...

VIDEO: Mike Scioscia forgets the rule about mound visits and pitching changes

Just when it looks like things can't get any worse for the Angels, Mike Scioscia goes and makes a fool of himself. This scene from last night's Angels-Athletics games features a confused Scioscia heading out to the mound with a 3-1 count on Adam Rosales. Of course Scioscia can't do that because pitching coach Mike Butcher went out for a mound visit to pitcher Nick Maronde...

Peter Bourjos Placed On 15-Day Disabled List By Angels

The Los Angeles Angels have placed outfielder Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list after straining his left hamstring. Because his asset is speed, this could be a tricky recovery and Los Angeles will want to make sure that there will be no chance at re-aggravation. Scott Cousins was called up to help fill the void. J.B. Shuck also will see some time. The post Peter Bourjos...

On an Intentional Ball Thrown to Albert Pujols

The game featured 18 runs and nearly 600 pitches, and in the end, the A’s improved to 15-12, while the Angels fell to something much worse than that. Generally, such games are immediately...

Brandon Moss walk-off homer ends 19-inning affair with Angels (Video)

After 19 innings, 6 hours and 32 minutes, 16 runs, 597 pitches, 16 pitchers being used, awful umpiring, inconclusive home run reviews, multiple players on both sides leaving with injuries, stir-crazy fans chanting A’s broadcasters’ names (because why not in the 17th inning?), A’s pitchers going to bat without any remaining position players, Mike Trout comically missing fly...

The teams were on the field for 6 hours, 32 minutes in a game that ended at...

Josh Ham' 'N Egger

Photo Credit: Keepers   I own zero shares of Josh Hamilton, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since I left him outside my top 10 in the OF edition of “Tiers, Not Fears.” Yet while I didn’t expect him to provide ample draft day value, I didn’t think he’d be this awful.    Is Josh Hamilton a lost cause? Or will God’s favorite addict pull off...

Quebec City building NHL-sized rink without guarantee of team

The Quebec Nordiques started out as a World Hockey Association team in 1972. It remained with the WHA until being absorbed into the NHL team in 1979. The Nordiques moved to Colorado in 1995 almost 20 years ago and there was very little hope that Quebec City would get a new team. Of course, that was until 2012 when the new division realignment was announced. Currently there...
