What I'm more interested in, however, is the height of his home runs. His home run on May 6th off Reds shortstop Paul Janish (video) reached its apex 164 feet from the ground, again far exceeding any other Brewer homer this year.
Now, how do these stack up against MLB as a whole? Turns out Fielder's are within two feet, and surely the margin of error, of both the highest and lowest home runs in all of baseball (inside-the-park jobs naturally excepted from the latter category). The man is truly superlative.
HitTracker's data goes back to 2005, and the highest home run they've tracked in those 4+ season, by a good ten feet, also belongs to a (then-)Brewer, though it's not Fielder. On May 24th, Carlos Lee launched a ball off our old friend Brandon Claussen that went 189 feet vertically, which is about as far as Jason Kendall's fly balls go horizontally.
Home runs are cool.
