For reasons sufficient unto myself, I find the towering parabola-blast to dead center to be the most aesthetically pleasing of home runs. On that point, the following smite by Diamondbacks clouter Paul Goldschmidt, which took place in the course of his team's eventual 12-6 win over the Padres, is for this writer a cornucopia of baseball nourishment and delight. Please regard ...

The people say, "Golly: That was hard, also far."

Per official-ish estimates, that was a 470-foot discharge, which makes it the fourth-longest homer of 2014. Self-evidently, it has been worth your while.
