We’re not even a month into the new Major League Baseball season, but we’ve already seen a few impressive home runs launched.
Against the New York Mets on Thursday, it was Justin Upton’s turn to get into the act.
In the bottom of the third inning, the younger of baseball’s Upton brothers hit his second home run of the game. The first went a modest 379 feet. The second, almost one hundred feet further.
Justin Upton's 3rd inning HR went 477 feet, the longest home run at Turner Field since Adam Dunn's 479-footer on Sept. 14, 2010.

Upton’s prodigious clout is currently the second-longest home run of the young season behind the one mentioned above by Giancarlo Stanton, which you should take a look at.
This is the look of a man who just served up a 477-ft home run.
