Monster: Aaron Judge Just Broke the Home Run Exit Velocity Record

Baseball Is Fun

Yo, Giancarlo Stanton. You have some competition.

After years of dominating the exit velocity and distance record books at the dish in the same way that Aroldis Chapman does on the mound, Stanton is being challenged by New York Yankees monster Aaron Judge.

Having already homered once tonight, look at what Judge just did:

That rocket liner was hit so hard and so low that the pitcher actually instinctively shielded his face … on a ball that wound up going 435 feet.

That’s because this shot was a record-breaker:

Judge, all 6’7″ 282 lbs of him, has now already homered nine times this season.
