      <br>Born in Laconia, NH. Andre Tolme conceived and carried out a unique idea: to divide the country of Mongolia into an eighteen-hole golf course, one that would follow nomadic trails, rivers, and primitive roads across the nation from east to west-a distance of some 1,320 miles. Each hole would be located at a major metropolitan area; when Tolme successfully completed a hole, he would then begin again at the westernmost edge of the developed area. Tolme’s intent was to give himself a personal test, and to raise awareness of the natural beauty of Mongolia and the lives of its people. The idea of “Golf Mongolia” was a way for him to combine his long-held interests of golfing, exploring the world, and travel-writing. Tolme traveled with three-iron golf club. He cooked his own food, except on nights that some Mongolian family might offer him their hospitality. His caddie, Khatanbaatar, knew nothing of golf, but he did drive a Jeep, carrying food, water, and a tent. Along the way, Tolme encountered wolves, plague-carrying marmots, and blistering heat. On a golf course with a par of 11,880, he went 290-over-par and lost more than 500 balls. He recorded his adventure in the book I Golfed across Mongolia: How an Improbable Adventure Helped Me Rediscover the Spirit of Golf (and Life). The book is “intriguing,” according to a Publishers Weekly writer, although ultimately full of “too much golf, not enough Mongolia.” Those who do find golf compelling, however, will find that Tolme relates his epic game “energetically,” concluded the reviewer.<br>
      <br>Hitting a home run to straight away center field off of a 90-mile-an-hour fastball is difficult to do. Standard center field walls in the major leagues stand between 400-410 feet away from home plate. That’s a long way away. However, sluggers in this list make 400 feet seem like child’s play as all of them have hit the ball at least 503 feet. A lot of these homers reached the upper decks and some even left the ballpark completely. If the home run is the most exciting play in baseball, than here are the most awesome. We now present to you the 15 longest home runs ever hit. Richie Sexson stood so tall in the batters box you would think that he was tall enough to play in the NBA. The 6’6″ journeyman outfielder had great extension, enough to hit 306 career homers, mostly during his prime with the Seattle Mariners and the Milwaukee Brewers. He smoked his longest career home run in Arizona off of Chicago Cubs pitcher Francis Beltran.<br>
      <br>The majestic shot actually hit the scoreboard above the centerfield fence. When Adam Dunn strides to the plate, it is usually a 50-50 proposition. The slugger will either strike out or mash a hanging curve ball into the bleachers. And just because he bats from the left side, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to strategize by putting a southpaw on the mound. In September 2008, Dunn crushed a fastball from Colorado lefty Glendon Rusch that hit the Jumbotron at Chase Field. Besides Dunn, only Mickey Mantle and Mark McGwire appear twice on this list, proving Dunn swings a mean bat. The Dunn homer is at 6:20 in the video. Big Mo struggled with injuries late in his career, but you’d never know it witnessing this moon shot he hit as a member of the New York Mets. His prime years were spent as a fan favourite in Boston, where his big frame and patented swooping, uppercut type of swing produced a lot of dingers.<br>
      <br>He was Big Papi before Big Papi. The tater in this video caused a ripple in the giant right field Jumbotron at Shea Stadium. Thome had a sweet, sweet home run swing. Enough to belt 612 big flies in his 22-year career and enough to get him into the Hall of Fame when he’s eligible. As popular a player who ever donned a Cleveland Indians uniform, Thome victimized Kansas City Royals hurler Don Wengert for a homer that made it right out of Jacobs Field, to the amazement of the fans, TV commentators, coaches and teammates alike. It may not have been the only home run ever to leave Jacobs Field, but it was memorable. Affectionately known to Red Sox fans as Big Papi, Ortiz unloaded on many a hapless pitcher, sending home runs rocketing past Pesky’s pole at Fenway. After playing a major role in the Red Sox 2004 championship drive, Ortiz joined an all-star team for a tour of Japan.<br>
      <br>In a 5-3 win against the Japan Stars at the Tokyo Dome, Ortiz drove a ball into the lights high above the upper deck in right field. Domo Arigato, Big Papi. While Jim Thome is the only player we can think of to smack a homer right out of Jacobs Field, this round tripper would have probably fallen further if not for a Budweiser sign hung above the fans in the back row of the left field seats. The A’s McGwire hit the ball so hard off of Cleveland’s Orel Hershiser that it caused the veteran pitcher to mouth the word “wow” as the ball sailed into the left field bleachers. Though this home run is impressive, it pales in comparison to the one later in this list, an absolute blast against future Hall of Famer Randy Johnson. There really is nothing like getting the head of the bat out on a high fastball.<br>
