Coors Field in Colorado makes for an epic Home Run Derby. Oakland Athletics first baseman Matt Olson and Trey Mancino of the Baltimore Orioles showed us that first-hand as the two opened up the derby Monday evening.
Mancino belted a whopping 24 homers in the first round, including a couple that traveled nearly 500 feet at the high altitude.
Not to be outdone, Matt Olson hit 23 of his own. That included this absolute monster of a shot to the upper deck. In the process, a fan at Coors Field pretty much put everything on the line to catch the towering homer. Check it out.
That’s some pretty awesome dedication from the fan to catch a foul ball. The good news? He seemed to be just fine.
