GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt for the FARTHEST BASEBALL EVER HIT | sponsored by @JustBats.com

The current “longest home run ever hit” as reported by Guinness World Records™ is a 574-foot blast off the bat of the Great Bambino in 1921.
Today, we are going to see if we can by some means break that record…
We journeyed to Victor, Colorado which is home to the highest-elevation baseball field in America at almost 10,000 feet in the air! We are using the hottest bats in the game, the hottest baseballs in the game, and the skinniest air in North America.

We could not have done this without any the astonishing support from Earnie Granville AKA “Texas Tony Turnstyle” with 3BGB, JustBats.com, VukGripz, and the City of Victor, CO. Thank you all so much!

    Disclaimer: all official distances/measurements from Guinness are based on exactly where the ball lands…regardless of any vertical displacement due to elevation gain. Unfortunately, we were not given credit for “projected distance” which is the metric commonly used in Major League Baseball.

    Make sure your video quality is up all the way, go full-screen, crank the volume, and enjoy!

    • @Smashed bread technically that would be true to the farthest hit ball in terms of horizontal distance from contact, but I think they qualify small changes in elevation exclusively. I think the reason the Guinness world record uses physical distance is because it’s hard evidence whereas distance protections have changed over the years and are subject to opinion so in that regard i can kinda understand why they do this. It also depends on whether the surveyor does a direct distance from point of contact or if he does just the horizontal component

      @Smashed bread lmaoo truu 😂

    • i would like to point out that Guinness is really just set up as a marketing company who gives the record titles out mostly to companies for advertisement purposes and honestly id say that because of this, in my opinion, i no longer view them as a reputable record tracking source. Namely this can be seen in the process they have set up for submitting records (in most cases they will not look at your submissions for about 7-8 months unless you pay and even then if you don’t pay them you may have to wait for years in some cases. in short, if you do not pay them then they wait for no reason at all to look at your submission.) alongside the fact that they dont count the Joey Meyer blast

    • @KillerSharkNHwk Yep. It is scammy and silly and invalid.
