Evan Gattis uncorked the longest homer hit in Major League Baseball this year. The Atlanta Braves rookie pounded a 1-0 fastball from Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels in the Braves' loss at Citizen Bank Park on Sunday. Watch this.
Gattis' moonshot was estimated at 480 feet, just longer than the previous season record by San Francisco Giants right fielder Hunter Pence, who hit one 476 feet at Coors Field on Aug. 27.
Both Braves hits and runs Sunday were solo homers by Gattis, giving him 18 homers in just 85 games this season.
