Found August 27, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
A day after running full speed into the outfield wall like Bump Bailey and shaking it off like it was no big deal, Hunter Pence was back in the full maniac mode we’ve come to know him for on Tuesday night when he pummeled this pitch to the left field seats: Your browser does not support iframes. The ball traveled an estimated 476 feet. That is the longest home run in all of the majors this season. By Hunter Pence. For real. OK, fine, it was at Coors Field. Any asterisk the homer gets is an asterisk well-deserved. But let the record show it’s still the longest ball hit this season. Let’s see somebody else in Denver try to top that. The ultimate lesson here: Eat kale.

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...

Reports From Under the Bus: SF Giants News, Notes & Comments

In a way I don't blame Giant fans for reacting irrationally after watching their championship team capsize and completely tank this year.
