It had been a while since Aaron Judge displayed his strength and hit a ball over the fence -- 30 at-bats to be specific (though Jackie Bradley Jr. is somewhat responsible for that). But when the Mariners were hosting the Yankees Friday night, he refreshed our memories in a colossal way.
The 25-year-old T-Mobile Home Run Derby champion smashed a ball almost out of Safeco Field. The ball landed in the third to last row of the top left-field bleachers.
It was hit so far in fact, CC Sabathia could barely believe it. He had to point it out to Judge where the ball had landed.
Judge is known for hitting the ball into the atmosphere, including a 513-foot monstrosity during the Derby.
It looks as though like Judge is back to his normal ways.
