May 12, 2015 Giancarlo Stanton’s homer goes down as the third-longest shot ever hit at Dodger Stadium. Connecting off Mike Bolsinger in the top of the first inning with no score, Stanton literally launched the ball beyond the bleachers in left field. Statcast reported that the ball left the stadium with a velocity of 114 mph with an estimated projection of 475 feet. It was the first homer hit out of Dodger Stadium since Mark McGwire’s 1999 shot. Unfortunately for the Marlins, it was the only score of the night, and the Dodgers traded a bit of hurt pride for a 21-hit fireworks show and an 11-1 win.
