Join the conversation!
it had about 8 seconds of hang time. had to be close to 500 foot bomb
If only there were a guy on base….
yea he cheated tho
Can't tell which is more entertaining – the home run where the ball went to another planet or McCarver's idiotic follow-up commentary
0:55 Is that Joe Buck muffling his laugh at idiot McCarver?
would’ve won if angels didn’t cheat with illegal 3rd world underage pitchers…
That's gotta be the longest home run in World Series history. This and the one Pujols destroyed in Houston
Legend says that camera man is still moving his camera around trying to locate that moon shot till this day
Man I watched the video of the Yankee stadium one he's taking about and idk. U literally can't see where the ball goes and you can't see anyone trying to catch it.
Who's here after Stephen A top 5😂
Distance ever given or estimated on this 1? Guessing close to 500ft. or better?
Roids on that beast!
Back when baseball players were the size of WWE wrestlers. It was a show for sure.
That baseball was ABSOLUTELY OBLITERATED!!!!!!!! Barry Bonds is the GOAT.
If my lip reading is right:
"OH my God! That's some serious power right there. That's the furthest ball I've ever seen hit"- Tim Salmon
I was in high school when this happened, watched it live. That HR was the first thing we talked about the next day. It was incredible. I'll never forget being in complete awe. Troy Percival was a great reliever and Bonds absolutely destroyed the ball, it disappeared into the night.
Too bad Ohtani wasn’t playing back then. It would have even an HR Derby
Notice the umpire during the replay LOL
Can someone please fix the archiving of early 2000s video. It didn't look bad when it first aired
The best player to ever swing a bat..barry bonds!
It's a shame the quality is bad. MLB PLEASE RELEASE A HIGH QUALITY VIDEO OF THIS. AND THE YANKEE STADIUM HR.
And keep in mind this was off Troy Perceval, who wasn’t exactly prone to giving up HR’s
keplar satellite is tracking it
Dear MLB, a baseball with a 2002 WS logo just hit our 5LDK window in Japan in the year 2022.
We're gonna keep it FYI.
Love the gentle HR trot by Bonds. Camera guy captured that beautifully
Should be in the HOF
Honestly I’ve replayed this clip so many times and what the announcers says from 0:47–0:55 still makes absolutely no sense…
I love how the umpire immediately threw another ball to the pitcher.
Even without steroids he would probably be able to hit it this far. The steroids just added on.
Bonds use to play with the sliders on 0
It’s 2022. The season hasn’t started yet, but a baseball landed in my backyard.
That pitcher looked pretty juiced up on the roids..look at that leg kick lol
Bonds is like a Final Boss in a video game.
Because the camera guy lost sight of the ball, I legit thought Bonds had hit it out toward the freeway .
Dayum I wish we can see where that ball landed. Guess we'll never know.
I’ve seen this so many times and still have no idea where that ball landed
What was the distance
He may have did steroids, but the drills he did made him the greatest of all time.
Best era of baseball ever
McCarver is wrong, this one disappeared into space.
so many of his shots, the cameraman pans to the sky, over the lights and then locates.
Did the ball ever come down?
Shut up McCarver!!!!!
Color commentator botched that whole thing lol
Guy was a video game character like da 🤷♂️
That camera man gave him way too much credit. The ball landed about half way up the seats which you can't tell with this low quality video.
Respect to Troy Percival for challenging him. No one on base with a two run lead, throw that gas and see if he can hit it.
id love to know how far that ball was hit.
Don't care how you feel about him, don't care what he didn't or did take, that swing was poetry in motion! Him and Ken Griffey Jr's swing was just nasty filthy beautiful
