Jesus Montero turned some heads in batting practice yesterday, nailing a home run off the “M” in the “George M. Steinbrenner Field” sign in centerfield. The Star Ledger’s Marc Carig called up Google Earth and determined that it’s 446 feet from home plate to the scoreboard. That’s probably on-the-ground length. When you look at how high up the “M” is, you have to figure that Montero’s drive would have had a lot more distance than that.
Yeah, it’s only batting practice, but that’s still pretty damn impressive.
