Coors Field over the years has been known to be a big-time hitter's ballpark. The high elevation of Denver, Colorado helps balls launch off the bat and fly through the air.

Every once in a while, a ball gets smoked so hard that it looks like it might never land, and that's exactly what happened when Trevor Story launched this fastball nearly out of the stadium. It turned out to be the longest home run in Coors Field history!

It doesn't matter what conditions or what ballpark you're hitting in, 505 feet is a mammoth home run. Was the distance aided by the location of the game? Probably. Does that make it any less fun to watch? Nope.

That ball came off the bat at 111.9 miles per hour — making it the 10th-hardest hit home run at Coors Field over the last two seasons, as well as the hardest hit home run of Story's MLB career.

While the bombs of the steroid era are long gone, it's nice to get a little glimpse of what that used to be like every once in a while in the thin air at Coors field.
