Giancarlo Stanton, Outfielder, Miami Marlins
Highly Questionable host Dan Le Batard has called Stanton the strongest hitter in the history of baseball, and it’s hard to argue with him. Stat geeks point to Stanton’s “hard hit percentages” (the percentage of time he makes hard contact with the baseball) and his “exit velocity” (the speed of the baseball off his bat) to support such claims. Bottom line: The guy has a lot of power. The young star smashed 181 home runs (some as far as 490 feet) in his first five seasons, and his passion for heaving up large piles of iron in the gym—particularly in the winter months—will only make him stronger and more frightening to pitchers. Stanton has a few major shots on this list of the strongest, longest, most powerful home runs of the millennium.
