The Detroit Tigers have plenty of powerful bats in their lineup. Shortstop Jose Iglesias is not one of them... normally. Boston Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez would beg to differ after the two faced off on Saturday.

Iglesias’ home run was measured at 433 feet. I could fact check this, but I’ll just go out on a limb and say it was the longest of his career by a fair margin. He only has 11 of them, after all.
