Giancarlo Stanton nearly hit a ball out of Target Field during Home Run Derby (Video)

Leading up to Major League Baseball’s Home Run Derby, Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins was a popular choice as the favorite, and for good reason.

Stanton has hit the second longest home run in the majors this season and has two in the top ten.

On Monday, the 24-year-old slugger launched six homers in the Home Run Derby’s first round, most among the National League participants and second to Jose Bautista’s 10.

Among them was the above blast into the upper deck at Target Field, that wasn’t far from leaving the stadium altogether. ESPN Stats & Info gave it a projected distance of a mere 510 feet.

Unfortunately, Stanton didn’t hit any home runs in the third round and failed to secure a spot in the final. On the positive side, he gave us this one to watch over and over again.
