Look Where Aaron Judge's Mammoth Home Run Landed

The homer, Judge's AL-leading 37th of the season, gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead over the Mets.

Aaron Judge hit a massive home run against the New York Mets on Wednesday night, but it was another one of his at-bats that set a Major League record. "I was told before the game that I tied the record". I guess it just depends on how superstitious you are with that theory. He homered for the second time in three games, showing signs of breaking out of his slump. Judge's 159 strikeouts are topped by Miguel Sano's 164.

Judge's streak dates back to July 8, just before the All-Star break.

Didi Gregorius, who was on deck at the time of the Judge home run, thought the ball traveled at least 500 feet. "When we look at him, yeah, he's pulled some home runs, but we've seen a number of them in right and center". This record has been around since 1971 when former pitcher Bill Stoneman struck out 35 games in a row with the Montreal Expos.

Despite breaking the strikeout record, the outfielder managed to hit a home run 457 feet onto the third deck in left field that reportedly traveled 117 miles per hour.

Aaron Judge and the rest of the Yankees take the field against the Toronto Blue Jays in May 2017.
