Who’s hit the longest dingers since ‘06?

Today’s Sporcle is a direct riff on Jim’s great article from Thursday. Should you choose to accept this mission, you’ll be asked to name the White Sox players who have socked the longest home runs since 2006. One note, however: I pulled the data using ESPN’s hit tracker, so the distances don’t match up with some of the names using Statcast. I wanted to get as big a list as possible, though, which is why I went with the hit tracker. Good luck!

Quiz Parameters

  • As always, last names accepted in addition to full names.
  • There are a lot of repeats on this list despite the 60 entrants; therefore, I’ve given you just 6 minutes to complete all the names.
  • For hints, I’ve provided the date, the position, and the distance.

Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or sadden your friends:

  • Positionally, the DH spot contributed the most home runs to this list, with 21.
  • Every defensive position (well, other than pitcher) is represented on this list with the exception of CF.
