Longest Home Runs of the First Half of 2016

I saw an article about the longest home runs of the first half of 2016 on Cut 4, an MLB.com website today. It’s fitting because today is “National Tape Measure Day”. (Somehow I don’t think Hallmark greeting cards can cash in on this one…) Here are the longest home runs of the first half of 2016 and the distances. Also indicated if the player is a confirmed user of the Pow’r Wrap bat weight.

1. Nomar Mazara, May 25 – 491 feet, uses Pow’r Wrap bat weight; See: http://img.bleacherreport.net/img/images/photos/003/591/943/hi-res-6352d196baf95187b410feca1998c67f_crop_north.jpg?w=630&h=420&q=75

It’s no coincidence that the players with the longest home runs in the first half of 2016 use the Pow’r Wrap. The Pow’r Wrap will work and develop the specific muscles used in hitting a baseball and with repeated usage will increase bat speed and thus give you the ability to hit the ball with more power.
