Major League Baseball's 30 Longest Bombs of the Year
Kirby Lee/US Presswire

To hit a home run in Major League Baseball—especially a no-doubter—is an impressive feat.

We've been treated to countless blasts in 2012, which is why I consulted the ESPN Home Run Tracker to determine the 30 longest bombs.

Greg Rybarczyk's "true distance" statistic estimates where a ball would have landed if its flight was uninterrupted. Within hours, his site answers the question of "how far it really went."

Several unaccomplished batters crashed this prestigious list, while household names like Ryan Braun, Adam Dunn, Curtis Granderson and Albert Pujols didn't make the cut.

After reading the descriptions, I strongly recommend clicking on the "watch it" links. Double rainbows, unicorns and live births pale in comparison to the beauty of these majestic shots.
