Top 10 Powerful Home Runs In Baseball History
Where were you on October 17th, 2005, when Albert Pujols jacked a three-run homer in the top of the 9th of Game 5 of the NLCS against the Houston Astros? Steve Peloquin and Kevin Foote were crying (only for a day or so, as the Astros eventually won the Pennant and advanced to the World Series), as was Brad Lidge’s soul. It was an iconic home run in baseball history, and truly one of the most powerful of all-time. Where does it ranked among the top 10?
Not ahead of Babe Ruth (pictured), who in Game 3 of the 1932 World Series famously called his shot as he pointed to the outfield. Soon after, he crushed a home run that is still considered the longest in Wrigley Field history.
