Welcome to Highlight Homers, where notable home runs from the past and present, particularly long ones, are examined in detail...

When a notable home run is hit this year, it will be featured here in more detail than is available on the main page. A long home run, a homer hit through a strong wind, a ball that barely makes the seats with a strong tail wind, these are the sort of home runs that will be featured here.

There will also be some historic home runs from the past. The method for analyzing historic home runs is the same as is used for current home runs, except that typically video is not available, and atmospherics are also often not available. This means that assumptions must be made about the time in flight and the atmospherics; wherever possible, contemporary reports will be used to choose the best possible assumed values or range of values to get a reasonable answer. See each individual homer for comments on the data sources, the assumptions used and the caveats/disclaimers for each estimate...
