The longest home run in the history of the College World Series' ballpark, TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, was hit on Sunday.

Auburn's Edouard Julien hit an absolute shot to right field in the top of the second inning against Mississippi State.

The homer was tracked at 429 feet, which tied former Florida Gator Pete Alonso for the longest HR in the park's history.

It opened in 2011.

NCAA.com says it's not "officially" the longest home run in College World Series history, though.

Why is this record unofficial? We reached out to Jeff Williams, NCAA associate director of media coordination and statistics, to find out if the NCAA keeps historical records of the longest home runs hit at the College World Series. It turns out they don't. But thanks to ESPN, television home to the CWS since 2003, we have a pretty good idea of some of the other longest bombs.

ESPN has tracked six College World Series at more than 420 feet long since 2011, however.

The College World Series continues today.
