Aaron Judge Hit a Homer So Deep It Couldn’t Be Tracked By Statcast

Interesting

Aaron Judge recorded just one hit at the plate last, but boy did he make it count.

Not only was his one hit a three-run shot that put the Yankees up 5-1 (a lead they wouldn’t surrender for the rest of the night), it was a homer so deep, so high that it evaded all official measurements (per MLB).

Check it out for yourself:

Apparently, the ball was just a couple of rows from leaving Safeco Field entirely, which is not something that has ever happened at that stadium. It was also Judge’s 31st homer of the season, giving him sole-possession of first place on the leader boards.

For what it’s worth, ESPN’s Home Run Tracker (which uses their own estimation system, outside of the more accurate in-park radar of Statcast) estimated a distance of 437 feet, which would still be a monster shot of course, but not quite as far as the homer looked to the eye.

In any case, that homer was an absolute MONSTER and so is Aaron Judge.

And don’t forget, he’s not just a pretty bat:
