Oh, right, that kid was Giancarlo Stanton. Or, maybe Stanton is just locked in right now. In less than two weeks, Stanton has topped 469 feet twice. For the entire 2013 season, only eight home runs total bested that mark, so maybe we're entering a season that will feature several awe-inspiring blasts to places we never thought could be reached. And on Saturday night in Philadelphia, some kid hit a home run estimated at 469 feet by ESPN's Hit Tracker, which landed somewhere in the crowd gathered at Tony Luke's restaurant located on Ashburn Alley at Citizens Bank Park.
