Longest home run in Denver history was hit at Mile High Stadium in 1987

DENVER — Trevor Story hit the longest home run in Rockies and Coors Field history on Wednesday night, but it wasn’t the longest home run in Denver history. That took place at Mile High Stadium.

Story hit a 505-foot homer in a win against the Giants at Coors Field on Wednesday night, according to Statcast. It was one of three home runs he hit in the game.

Story’s 505-foot home run was the longest in the majors since Statcast began projecting home runs in the 2015 season.

The hit left some wondering where his hit stacks up in history. And although he tops for the Rockies and Coors Field now, he has a few more feet to go to get the Denver record.

The longest home run in the history of Denver was hit by Joey Meyer of the Triple-A Denver Zephyrs on June 2, 1987, when he hit a 582-foot home run at Mile High Stadium.

Story has 31 home runs on the season and is tied with Nolan Arenado for most on the Rockies this season.
