Titanic Aaron Judge Home Run Dents Yankee Stadium Door Casement
Rookie wunderkind Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees continues to delight and astonish fans with his home run prowess.
The hulking six-foot-seven, 282-pound outfielder has just been killing the ball this year and leads the major leagues with 28 home runs, many of them among the hardest hit of recent times.
Judge absolutely clobbered one on Tuesday afternoon, hitting it so hard that it dented a door casement at Yankee Stadium.

The rocket shot was measured at 118.4 mph and traveled 456 feet where it put a dent into the metal fixture in center-left field.
Judge’s homer represented the Yankees only run in a 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Baby Bambino is on a tear as the All-Star break approaches and should be a big hit in the home run derby.
If he continues at his red-hot pace he is nearly a lock for 50 home runs and may even threaten the team record of 61 set by Roger Maris way back in 1961.
