VIDEO: Remember when Mo Vaughn hit one 505 feet?

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

As we've mentioned a few times in this space, video opened its archives to include tons of footage not previously available. We've already posted Glenallen Hill's mammoth home run onto a Wrigeyville rooftop and Brooks Robinson's famed theft of a potential double by Lee May in the 1970 World Series.

And now, it's time to take a look at a 505-foot homer off the bat of Mo Vaughn in Shea Stadium back in 2002.


For some perspective, the longest home run in the majors last season was 494 feet, off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton in the thin air of Coors Field. So, yeah, this Vaughn blast is unbelievably impressive.
