The MLB write up of the game had this report:
For a more reasonable description, Brett Dolan tweeted
In the ninth, Astros Minor League callup Telvin Nash hit a monstrous home run off Braves right-hander Cristhian Martinez. The ball cleared a 65-foot-high scoreboard in left-center field by about 15 feet.
@AstrosRadio Astros minor leaguer Telvin Nash just hit 800 foot homer at Disney. Hit it over giant scoreboard in LC. Wow.According to Wikipedia, it is 385 feet to left center. Below is a photo of the field from the Wikipedia site that shows the scoreboard.
What do spring training home runs mean, especially in a 7-1 loss? Not much at all. But let's hope that the buzz created by Nash's home run will lead to a great season of development for him.
By the way, I heard that Nash's home run ball just passed the Albert Pujols home run ball from the 2005 playoffs.
