Brew Crew Blasts: The Longest of 2014

Finishing up a series from earlier this year, we take a look back at the three longest home runs of 2014 before the 2015 season begins today.

Earlier this offseason, we were going through a series with the longest home runs from the 2014 season. That series ended up getting delayed, and before the 2015 season truly begins, let's look back at the three longest home runs of 2014.

#3: Khris Davis, May 23 @ Miami Marlins

The third longest home run came in a game in May against the Miami Marlins. With Khris Davis at the plate facing Brad Hand, Davis crushed a pitch to center field that easily cleared the fence and landed on the concourse. Final distance of the home run came in at 448 feet.

#2: Carlos Gomez, April 18 @ Pittsburgh Pirates

This game is better remembered for the hit where Martin Maldonado tore the cover off of a baseball. However, it also contained the second longest home run hit by a Brewer in 2014. In the fifth inning, Carlos Gomez faced Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton and hit a monster home run to center field. It measured at 457 feet total, and was the second longest of the 2014 season.

#1: Rickie Weeks, May 18 @ Chicago Cubs

The longest home run hit by a Brewer in 2014 came from a player no longer on the team. In a Sunday game against the Cubs, Rickie Weeks came to the plate in the fifth inning with the Brewers down 4-0. He hit a home run off of Travis Wood, one that traveled so far that it left Wrigley Field. Measuring at 464 feet, it was easily the longest home run hit in the 2014 season.
