Tony Blanco just hit a mammoth home run of Kenta Maeda in the bottom of the fourth with Masahiko Morino on first.

The ball actually hit off one of the speaker banks up on the ceiling and then dropped into he outfield. I'm seeing numbers like 160-170M on some message boards, which works out to about 525ft to 558ft.

UPDATE 9:07pm
According to the report I just heard during a replay of the home run, it was the first of it's kind at Nagoya Dome.
