Rockies’ C.J. Cron crushes 504-foot homer against D-backs

Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron hit an estimated 504-foot moonshot against the Diamondbacks Friday night at Coors Field.

The homer came in the fourth inning off D-backs pitcher Keynan Middleton in the fourth inning. It’s also the longest recorded home run this season in Major League Baseball.

Cron’s blast is the second-longest homer of the Statcast Era, and tied Giancarlo Stanton’s blast as the longest in Coors Field history. Stanton’s 504-foot homer came back when he was playing for the Marlins on Aug. 6. 2016.
