smash a home run off somebody

In the fifth inning of his first game he smashed a 450-foot home run off Glenn Abbott into the left-center field waterfall at Royals Stadium and spent an hour and a half after the game signing autographs, smiling the entire time.
I am not sure if I understand this sentence correctly. Anyway, I take it to mean that he avoided a home run by Glenn Abbott and threw the ball into the waterfall. Is that right?

What does 450 foot refer to?

Thanks.
