It’s no secret by now that Christian Yelich knows how to hit some pretty big bombs.
The Milwaukee Brewers slugger has enjoyed a nice little turnaround this year, hitting .259 with 12 home runs and 46 RBI after a few down seasons.
Last night, he hit a big home run at Coors Field against the struggling Colorado Rockies.
He launched a 2-1 pitch from Rockies starter Chad Kuhl that ended up reaching the third deck.
The ball actually traveled 499 feet, which makes Yelich’s home run the longest one of the 2022 season thus far, but that’s a mark that may not be surpassed this season.
The longest homer of 2022 belongs to @ChristianYelich. 💪

Get Up, Get Up, Get Outta Here And Gone!
That’s a long home run.
You can bet that Bob Uecker enjoyed calling that one.
That’s almost to Ted Williams territory.
Yelich’s power numbers aren’t quite what they used to be, but he can still hit some tanks.
There was absolutely zero doubt about this one.
That’s a good way to open the scoring, especially in a ballpark such as Coors Field, where the ball travels far thanks in large part to the altitude.
Yelich certainly got all of that one.
It’s going to be incredibly hard for anybody to beat that this year.
Yes, the ball travels far at Coors Field, but even at that ballpark, it’s going to be hard for people to hit it that far.
Yelich got all of it.
Not even Randal Grichuk‘s walk-off home run went as far as his did.
That’s quite an impressive feat for Yelich.
We all love to see some long home runs.
We’ll see if anybody can even come close to what Yelich did last night.
That’s going to be extremely hard to beat.NEXT: Christian Yelich Had A Hilarious Gift For An Opponent
