New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge lit the Bronx up on Friday night with two eye-popping home runs.
Judge’s first blast of the night came in the fifth inning with an exit velocity of 113 mph and traveled 417 feet into the visiting team’s bullpen at Yankee Stadium.
The next blast from the 6-foot-7 beast came in the following inning when he launched a 435-foot blast into monument park with an exit velocity of 119.3 mph.
This home run hit by Judge in the bottom of the sixth was the hardest hit ball ever hit in the statcast era, just proving how dangerous he can be with a bat in his hands.
Tonight’s multi-home run performance was the first game in Judge’s MLB career where he hit more than one home run during a game.
With the right-hander currently tied at the top of the American League leaders in home runs, expect many more of these blasts from Judge as the season goes on.
