Homer, round-tripper, big fly, dinger, long ball, jack, bomb, tater, blast. Whatever you call them, home runs are awesome. There's no denying it. Not only are they instant offense, but the biggest, loudest, and longest home runs are majestic sights to behold.
Paced by Kyle Schwarber's 47 home runs and five other players with at least 20 long balls, the Philadelphia Phillies totaled 220 home runs in 2023, the eighth most in the majors. More impressively, they hit 107 of those in the season's final two months, which tied them with the Atlanta Braves for the most in that time.
In case you missed it, we've already counted down the Phillies' five hardest hits of 2023.
But who hit the longest home runs of the year for the Phillies? Here are the top five.
No. 5: Kyle Schwarber, 450 feet
The first entry in the list of longest Phillies home runs in 2023 comes from Kyle Schwarber — big surprise, right? This 450-foot blast came on June 13 at Chase Field against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Leading off the game, Diamondbacks starter Zach Davies got the count to 2-2 before Schwarber took a 94.1 mph middle-in sinker into the seats down the right field line. Schwarber's 18th home run of the year left the bat at 111.6 mph at a 31-degree launch angle.
The solo shot got the party started for the Phillies, who went on to win the game by a lopsided 15-3 score. Surprisingly, that was Schwarber's only RBI in five at-bats despite the offensive onslaught.
With an average home run distance of 407 feet in 2023, there's a good chance we'll see Schwarber later on on this list of the Phillies' longest home runs of the season.
