>>> According to @darenw – Director of MLB Research & Development − there were 24.5 miles worth of home runs hit in the HR Derby Monday night.

That is just short of the driving distance from the home stadium of winner Pete Alonso (the Mets’ Citi Field) to the Meadowlands Sports Complex (where there is no baseball played except during tail-gating before an E Street Band concert).
