I heard today's in Detroit traveled 440 feet, but I never saw a distance (mileage, really) on the one in KC yesterday. They showed the replay several times and I never even saw it come down. I assume it left the stadium entirely. Did anyone hear?

The word is Thomer (Toh-mer), not "Thome HR". :D:

Ok, so the last two were 440 and 425. Anybody remember the distances on the two at home?

Far?

I don't know but I would say somewhere between 390-400. I could be terribly wrong, but that is what I remember somewhat.

448 on ring day, i think a little less on opening night, like in the 420s

I know they were both over 400. I'm pretty sure the first one was 431.

Answering my own question: 431 and 448.

No it didn't, the excellent camera work only made it look that way.

It landed a little more than half-way up the seats.
