Longest Home Run: 510 feet

Giancarlo Stanton is truly a gift to baseball fans and just the type of player the present day era needed. Without the use of PEDs, Stanton is one of the best power hitters in any recent memory. The strength he displays is no joke, and can be seen throughout his highlights. Currently this season he has 5 home runs that have all left his bat at speeds over 115 mph, which is ridiculous and its a speed that no other current player has come close to. This strength and explosiveness adds to the impressive tape measure blasts from Stanton. Maybe even more impressive is the fact that he hit a ball this year actually out of Dodger Stadium. Truly inhumane strength. Stanton is the modern day Superman at the dish.
