David Ortiz Hits 482-Foot Homer Off Masahiro Tanaka At Fenway (Video)


Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz hit a mammoth home run Tuesday night at Fenway Park off New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

The ball landed 482 feet from home plate, making it the second-longest home run of the 2014 season (Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton’s 484-foot bomb is the longest). It also was the longest homer hit by a Red Sox batter in the last nine seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

It was Ortiz’s fourth home run of the season. Check it out in the video below.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
