VIDEO: Mike Trout 489-foot home run makes history in Kansas City
- Updated: June 27, 2014
The 489-foot blast was the longest home run ever by an American League player since ESPN began tracking the metric in 2006, as well as in Los Angeles Angels franchise history.
In addition, it was the longest at the Kansas City Royals’ home park since 2006. Though the Angels lost the game, 8-6 the Halos are still playing well, having swept their last home stand before heading out on the road Friday.
The best part about the home run? The fact that he semi-sprint around the bases like he does it all the time. Because he does.
