Aaron Judge launches multiple 500-foot home runs in derby (Video)

Aaron Judge did not disappoint in his Home Run Derby debut.

The New York Yankees slugger hit a 501-foot home run that completely cleared the Miami Marlins’ home run sculpture in left-center field.

Judge also hit another monstrous fly ball that actually hit the roof of the stadium, but it did not count as a home run. Had it not been interfered with, it may have gone 500 feet as well.

Amazingly, it wasn’t the first ball Judge hit off the roof during the festivities. The other just came during batting practice. He needed his 30-second bonus time, however, to sneak past the impressive Justin Bour, 23-22.

Judge’s second round didn’t better his first in quantity, but it definitely did in quality. Judge hit three more 500-foot home runs, including a mammoth 513-foot shot.

Judge did, indeed, win the whole thing, defeating Minnesota’s Miguel Sano in the final.
