    451'. His teammate (Ramirez) also hit one 451' the next day to almost the same spot.

      Per hittrackeronline

      Puig's went 451 feet with a speed of 107.8 miles per hour and an angle of 25.8 degrees.
      Ramirez' went 451 feet with a speed of 113.1 miles per hour and an angle of 19.8 degrees.

      Neither home run was particularly remarkable in terms of total distance nor speed off of the bat.

        So how do you all feel about whether Yasiel Puig should go to the All-Star?
        I say yes, It is baseball's best interest to have Yasiel in the All-Star game. He is capturing everyones attention. I have non-baseball friends asking me about Puig. Baseball fans, not just Dodger fans want to see him there. He is the most exciting player I have seen in a long time. Just like I wanted to see Harper before, I want to see Puig in the All-Star. He has legitimate talent.

          I think he needs to be there. He's the best player in baseball.

          Some guy in one of my fantasy baseball leagues asked his wife if he could name they're expecting child Yasiel. She of course said no, so he asked her if he could name the kid Puig. Which she also said no too. He's gonna try for a midle name now.

          I think he's going to start getting more walks too. I hear in the minors they adjusted to him and he started walking more.

          My prediction when he drops under 400 will be July 25th.

            Puig deserves to go. Why? Because he's the most electrifying, exciting, talked about player in the game. Period.

                  Another double.I think his average is back to over 430 now.
