[À SEE] A “bomb» of 462 feet for Édouard Julien with the Saints of St . Paul


Quebec baseball player Édouard Julien, Minnesota Twins prospect, hit a 462-foot long home run on Thursday night.

The feat, which occurred in St. Paul during a 10-8 Saints loss to the Nashville Sounds at the AAA level , is not trivial.

New York Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton tops the game with a 485-foot homer. Next in order are Jarred Kelenic (482), Brandon Crawford (482), C.J. Cron (479), LaMonte Wade Jr. (474), Austin Riley (473), Evan Longoria (463) and Charlie Blackmon (463).

It was also Julien's third home run in 18 games with the Twins, the Quebecer having also hit two long balls in eight major league games earlier this season .

Julien's batting average at the AAA level is currently .258. He added 17 walks for a .417 on-trail attendance rate.

In the same game between the Saints and the Sounds, Quebecer Abraham Toro also stood out for the Nashville club. with three hits in five at bats. He has thus raised his average to .281 since the start of the season.
