Chicks dig the long ball.
So do managers, offenses, and front offices. Let's face it. The only people that don't dig the long ball are probably the opposing pitchers.
Who in their right mind can't get behind a home run? There's just something about it. The sound that the ball makes when it cracks against the bat. The majestic arch it creates as it sails over the other team's head. The roar of the fans when it finally hits the seats.
It's one of the greatest moments in baseball and there are no two ways about it. The long ball is just exciting.
Well the Philadelphia Phillies know this first hand. Their history books hold the names of some of the most thrilling home run hitters of all-time. You're going to see Mike Schmidt and Ryan Howard on this list. I don't think that's a spoiler.
But the Phillies also have had plenty of underrated power hitters. They've had guys nicknamed for their brute strength and guys that you wouldn't have expected on a list like this in a million years, but baseball is timeless, and that's what makes it great.
Buckle in. We're about to witness some big time power.
