Aaron Judge’s at-bats are quickly becoming must-see TV.
You never know when you’re going to see his next moonshot – and you absolutely don’t want to miss it.
Good thing the Yankees named him their starting right fielder out of spring training.
In the fifth inning of the Yankees’ 9-1 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday night, Judge blasted a towering 451-foot homer into the left-center field bleachers with an exit-velocity of 115.5 mph.
It was his latest “WOW moment” in his first full season in pinstripes, prompting several #AllRise hashtags from his adoring fans on Twitter and a raucous reaction from his teammates on the bench.
Chase Headley stood with arms outstretched and a look of disbelief on his face while Starlin Castro, Brett Gardner and Austin Romine nearly fell over one another in celebration.
“You don’t see balls go up there every day. It was pretty impressive,” Joe Girardi said after his team finished up an 8-1 homestand. “We’ve seen him do it quite a bit in batting practice. I question the distance that they measured that in. But he’s swinging a great bat. I mean, he’s powerful.”
