The ball went 457 feet and exited the park at 117 mph, which is the fifth hardest ball hit this year by miles per hour. The other four hardest-hit balls ahead of this home run also belong to Aaron Judge. What a surprise.
At its peak, the ball hung 147 feet over the ballpark. No wonder not a single outfielder flinched as it came off his bat. Everyone could see that baseball was gone the second it made contact with Judge’s wooden instrument of destruction.
It’s a beast of a blast from a normal home run perspective, but when you flip things around and look at home plate from the spot that the ball landed, well it might as well be on a space station in orbit.
This is where Aaron Judge's home run landed. Look how far away home plate looks. pic.twitter.com/JhROXzje9f— Kenny Ducey (@KennyDucey) August 17, 2017
Judge took the whole Subway Series thing a little too literally, since it looks like he tried to smash that ball all the way out of the park and onto a subway headed back to the city.
