Aaron Judge Just Hit the Hardest Ball in Baseball This Year


Last night against the Boston Red Sox, Yankee’s outfielder Aaron Judge barreled up a baseball for the hardest hit ball of the season:


At 119.8 MPH, Judge takes over the top spot on the 2017 Statcast Exit Velocity rankings from … himself. In fact, he now holds all three of the top spots on the list:

  1. Aaron Judge: 119.8 MPH – Single
  2. Aaron Judge: 119.4 MPH – Home Run
  3. Aaron Judge: 119.0 MPH – Double

All Judge needs now is a 119+ MPH triple, to have the hit leaderboard cycle!
