Watch: Mike Trout belts 473-foot home run
Mike Trout absolutely destroyed a baseball on Saturday night.
Trout took an outside fastball from Kansas City Royals pitcher Jakob Junis deep to left field for a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning, putting the Angels up 1-0.

The home run was estimated to have traveled 473 feet and had an exit velocity of 112.8 mph. It marked Trout’s 250th career home run with the Angels, which is the third most in team history. Trout is up to 10 home runs and 28 RBIs on the season.
His homer was somehow measured as traveling farther than Bryce Harper’s prodigious blast earlier in the day. 473 feet is the second-longest mark of Trout’s career since the Statcast era.
