Pujols hits longest homer in Busch Stadium history. How far did it fly?

From Comcast SportsNet Monday, August 15, 2011

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols' National League-leading 29th home run in the first inning Sunday night was also the longest at 6-year-old Busch Stadium. Pujols two-run shot off Esmil Rogers off the Colorado Rockies cleared the bleachers beyond the visitor's bullpen in left field and was estimated at 465 feet. It bettered Lance Berkman's 452-foot homer to right off the Reds' Edinson Volquez on July 5. Pujols entered the game tied with Berkman for the league lead in homers. It's the latest in the season the franchise has had the league's top two home run hitters.
