    That reminds me of the longest home run ever hit.

    While playing for the Milwaukee Braves AA affiliate Atlanta Crackers in 1954, Bob Montag hit a monster 450-foot home run over the right field wall. The ball landed in a coal car of a passing train. Days later, a fireman aboard that train appeared in Atlanta. He presented the ball to Bob and told him he recovered it from the coal car. The fireman told him the train the ball had landed on that day traveled from Atlanta to Nashville, TN and back for a 518-mile round trip.

    That would mean that home run blast was 518-miles and 450-feet! Clearly the longest home run in baseball history!
