Giancarlo Stanton shares cool story about his home run out of Dodger Stadium

Giancarlo Stanton

Giancarlo Stanton is known for hitting some huge dingers during his career, but his mammoth home run at Dodger Stadium is one of his most famous.

Five years ago, Stanton crushed a bomb that landed on the roof at Dodger Stadium. He became only the fourth player to hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium, joining Mike Piazza, Mark McGwire and Willie Stargell.

On Tuesday, Stanton recalled the huge home run fondly and shared a cool story behind it. The New York Yankees slugger says he told his dad when he was 10 years old that he would one day accomplish the feat.

Hearing Stanton reminisce about that monster home run makes me miss baseball even more.

Stanton is 30 now and entering his third season with the Yankees after spending his first eight seasons with the Marlins. He has smacked 308 career home runs and led the National League in home runs twice.
