Shohei Ohtani has repeatedly shown that he does not need a home run derby to hit a tape home run.
The Angels’ heavy hitter fired another lunar shot on Friday night-a 463-footer, without a doubt, reached the upper deck of the right court in Seattle’s T-Mobile Park.
If you want to know how far the ball has gone, here is where it reportedly landed:
In the Angels’ first 87 games this season, Ohtani’s solo shot allowed Ohtani to hit 33 home runs, which allowed him to hit 60 home runs throughout the season. He has 16 of the past 21 games, which is a single season record for any 21 games in the American League.
Otani Shohei @angel Now he has 16 home runs in the past 21 games.
This is the highest HR of any player in 21 games in a single season in the history of the American League.

Ohtani’s last five home runs are estimated to be at least 400 feet away. According to baseball expertsThe average distance is 434.2 feet. The home run Friday was the longest in the group.
Of course, this is not his longest time of the year. He had a 470-foot shot in June.
And what is certain is that Otani will play some very long shots when he participates in the Derby in Denver on Monday. Major League Baseball will use juicing balls in the game, and Coors Field is one mile high.
Be careful, rock pile.
