10 Longest Homers Hit by Yankees Since 2005

River Ave. Blues ran an interesting article the other day running down the longest home runs by Yankee hitters since the 2005 season. As you might expect Alex Rodriguez was prominent in the list.

I’ll run down the list, but be sure to head over to RAB to get some context on the homers:

10. Alex Rodriguez – August 15, 2005 – 435 ft.
9. Arod – September 15, 2005 – 448 ft.
8. Robinson Cano – July 29, 2009 – 451 ft.
7. Arod – July 21, 2006 – 460 ft.
6. Hideki Matsui – April 24, 2007 – 465 ft.
Hideki Matsui – May 28, 2007 – 465 ft.
5. Jason Giambi – April 16, 2006 – 466 ft.
Wilson Betemit – June 29, 2008 – 466 ft.
4. Arod – August 9, 2008 – 467 ft.
3. Juan Miranda – October 2, 2009 – 469 ft.
Arod – June 30, 2008 – 469 ft.
2. Jorge Posada – September 19, 2006 – 472 ft.
1. Arod – June 15, 2006 – 488 ft.

None of those would have been deep enough to go out of Yankee Stadium in its deepest point in left field until 1937 when the fence was moved in from 490 ft. to 457 ft. and that still wouuld have kept three of these in the park. It was originally built in 1923 with a 500 ft. distance in left.
