Aaron Judge Sentences Another Ball to the Stands (I Know, I Know: So Corny – I’m Sorry)


Corny headlines and dad jokes aside, Aaron Judge is absolutely crushing it in the Majors. Just the other night he broke the home run exit velocity record, and tonight, he added his league leading twelfth home run.

Check it out:

According to Statcast, that ball traveled 384 feet, after leaving the bat at 109 MPH. Even crazier: it traveled 150 feet into the sky. That is utterly ridiculous. But what’s more ridiculous is that it was actually his SECOND homer of the night.


Earlier in the game, Judge hit a solo home run (his 11th) to gave the Yankees a 6-0 lead. Naturally, that ball was also struck well:


This guy is freakin’ awesome.

Or terrifying. No, he’s definitely terrifying.
