Yankees’ Aaron Judge ties Mike Trout for MLB’s longest home run

New York Yankees star outfielder Aaron Judge is heating up, and his home run against the Houston Astros on Thursday afternoon is the latest example.

Facing Astros reliever Ryan Pressley in the bottom of the eighth inning, Judge took a 3-1 pitch and parked it over the loading dock in left-center field.

The ball had an exit velocity 115.7 miles per hour and traveled 473 feet—tied with Mike Trout for the longest home run of the MLB season.
