To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Yankees slugger Aaron Judge put on the spectacle of all spectacles in the T-Mobile Home Run Derby on Monday. Swing after swing, Judge sent a ton of baseballs into the stratosphere at Marlins Park en route to defeating the Twins' Miguel Sano in the final round and taking home the Derby crown.
And in his second-round battle with the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger, well, Judge blasted a ball 513 feet to left field. Five. Hundred. And. Thirteen. Feet. It was unreal:
Judge's second-round takedown of Bellinger also included a 504-foot moonshot, as he was clearly in the zone on the night. Oh, and he also hit one that traveled 501 feet in the opening round, too.
That obviously caused tons of oohs and aahs in the crowd and at home on TVs across the world, but anybody caught up in that moment's insanity might have missed this: A few pitches later, Judge hit one to left-center that landed to the left of the sculpture -- and right into the glove of this fan, who was briliantly positioned on the stairwell at precisely the right time:
When it was all said and done, Judge swatted 47 homers on the night(!) and put up the type of distance we all dream of seeing on our fitness trackers.
