5 Longest Home Runs of April

Coors Field has been the best ball park to hit home runs in early in the MLB season, with 40 balls carrying over the wall. Only the Los Angeles Angels have hit as many home runs, 38, as the Rockies. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City has seen just 10 balls land in the seats, and a big reason why is that the Royals just do not hit home runs. No team in baseball has hit less home runs than the Royals 11.

Wandy Rodriguez, Eric Stults, Homer Bailey, David Price, Shelby Miller, Wade Miley and Dan Straily have each allowed a league high 7 home runs.

Chicago White Sox rookie Jose Abreu leads the MLB in home runs with 10, half of which have been just enogh, or lucky. while Albert Pujols is 2nd with 9 long balls.
