If you attended the midweek matchup between Oklahoma State and Wichita State this past Tuesday, you might’ve witnessed the longest home run hit in college baseball this season.
If not, don’t fret. We’ve got it here for you.
The mythical shot comes from Cowboys slugger Griffin Doersching, who looks to be the second coming of Mark McGuire. The first baseman also wears the same numbers on the jersey, though in reverse fashion with his No. 52.
Doersching stands 6-foot-4 and weighs in at 250 pounds. The Greendale, WI native is built like a small truck, and on Tuesday, he showed just what he’s able to do with that muscle.

That ball was BELTED. It appears to completely clear the hitting facility beyond the fence in deep left field, leaving the ballpark and finding parking lot.
Here’s another angle of the moon shot.

In true Oklahoma State fashion, Doersching rounds the bases, removes his helmet, and exchanges it fittingly for a cowboy hat.
Surprisingly, the mammoth shot was just Doersching’s second home run of the year, but that’s got more to do with the slugger having missed the entire month of March. The first baseman is now batting .381 in his first season with the Cowboys.
Doersching played for Northern Kentucky last year, setting a program record with 20 homers and 50 walks. He looks like he’s picking up right where he left off in Stillwater.
