Justin Ruggiano’s Version of Fireworks

Justin Ruggiano’s Saturday night homer gave the Rays an insurmountable 5-1 lead, but also stands out for other reasons, as the home run was the longest of the season, both for a Rays player and within the confines of Tropicana Field. Hit Tracker estimates the ball went 454 feet and came off Ruggiano’s bat at the speed of 112 miles per hour. Previously, B.J. Upton’s home run (just over a week earlier) was the longest of the Rays season, at 434 feet, and Evan Longoria held the Rays Golden Hammer prior to that. Here is video of the homer.
