Since it’s opening, Oriole Park at Camden Yards has been known as a hitter’s park. The right field line is 318 feet & 333 feet down the left field line. Center field is 400 feet & the deepest part of the park is left center at 410 feet. These friendly confines have resulted in a lot of home runs, and more than a fair share of fly ball & line drive homeruns.

But this list is interested in the longest, no doubt, crushed ball home runs in Oriole Park’s history. Home runs that would be a home run in any ballpark in MLB.
