"Rickey Henderson steals bags. Nolan Ryan strikes people out. I try to hit home runs. That's kind of what I do. If I didn't hit home runs, I wouldn't be in this league right now."

Adam Dunn absolutely destroyed a Jair Jurrgens fastball in the second inning Tuesday night for his 35th home run of the season. MLB.com reports that the ball traveled an estimated 455 feet, apparently good for only 6th longest in Turner Field history. But we swear it bounced well beyond that 460 ft. sign seen over on the right in the screengrab above. MASN's Ben Goessling agrees.
