Video: Giancarlo Stanton breaks own record for longest home run at Citi Field


Giancarlo Stanton 2-for-4 with a walk and two solo home runs in Saturday afternoon’s win against the Mets. His first home run was his traditional fare: a brute-force line drive home run to center field off of Jon Niese. The second was a ninth-inning moon shot that went into the second deck in left field at Citi Field.

That blast measured at 466 feet, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, citing ESPN Stats & Info. That bested the previous record of 465 feet for the longest homer at Citi Field, also held by Stanton.

Stanton now has 15 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .232/.326/.524 triple-slash line on the season.
