If you look at his in game home run tracking through his career, you'll notice that on average his HR travel further than pretty much everyone in Baseball. Miggy included.
I'd link if I wasn't on mobile.
His "can of corn" would be the common man's best swing of their life.
I throw harder than Verlander, too.

Just wait until he spends a year in Japan and returns. He'll be hitting 700-ft HRs.
Hi Yankee slurper!
My shot at straight away centerfield in Tiger Stadium in '81 was farther.
UM, Green Bay and Chicago teams all have one thing in common: They all suck
Kingman was a cub when he hit it. I just cut and pasted that article - gotta link to Gibby's?
Can't link it; it shows a June 14, 1983 homer vs Boston at 515 ft. I saw the one vs the Yankees in '81 that was a line drive off Davis? that dented the bleachers in center. Btw, there are many , many, home run hitters that hit balls that can never be measured with any accuracy, such as the mythical 600 footer by Mantle. Frank Howard and Josh Gibson are both known for hitting balls consistently out of ball parks, well over 500 feet many times, and their shots are timeless and memorable.
So trying to make Mantle out as the most 'impressive' is pretty silly.
