Pujols has a blast at Chase Field…

On Sept. 10, 2006 Albert Pujols hit his 45th and longest home run of 2006 to date, a 459 foot blast off the Diamondbacks’ Enrique Gonzalez at Chase Field.  Pujols’ shot left his bat at 119.4 mph, and landed in the second deck down the left field line (where else, check his homer scatter plot.)

Pujols’ previous longest homer of 2006 was his April 16 blast
off Cincinnati’s David Weathers at Busch Stadium, which traveled 455
feet (and which is still holding up as the longest in the history of
Busch III).

Another well-known Pujols homer, his 9th inning 3-run blast off Houston’s Brad Lidge in Game 6 of the 2005 NLCS, also covered 455 feet.
