Ever since New York Yankees’ star Aaron Judge debuted in 2016 and slugged a league-high 52 home runs in his rookie season in 2017, it’s no question that Judge is one of the biggest power hitters in Major League Baseball. Here’s a list of Judge’s ten longest home runs of his career.

NOTE Video has a slight mistake: The August 13th clip was 2016, not 2017!

#10 – May 3, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Toronto Blue Jays and Marcus Stroman

Distance: 435 feet

Bottom of the third inning, Aaron Judge smacked the 13th home run of his rookie year off well-respected Marcus Stroman. The ball landed in monument park, and any ball hit there, is an absolute bomb.

#9 – April 29, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Baltimore Orioles and Jayson Aquino

Distance: 435 feet

This game, Judge blasted two home runs to lead the Yankees in a comeback over the Baltimore Orioles. One of those home runs was this monumental blast that was hit into the bleachers at Yankee stadium.

#8 – April 12, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Tampa Bay Rays/Erasmo Ramirez 

Distance: 435 feet

Another bomb from the rookie that was hit into monument park. The New York Yankees were down 3-2 this game and came back to win 8-3 with several big hits from Judge, especially this blast.

#7 – September 12, 2016

Opposing team/pitcher: Los Angeles Dodgers/Jose DeLeon 

Distance: 436 feet

Who’s this guy that was just brought up from triple-A? Oh, he just took me 436 feet deep into the bleachers of Yankee Stadium. What an introduction to the pros.

#6 – June 12, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Anaheim Angles/Bud Norris

Distance: 438 feet

This 438-foot blast proved to be the game-winner for this game. The Yankees had actually blown a lead but Judge brought back the lead with this mammoth home run.

#5 – August 13, 2016

Opposing team/pitcher: Tampa Bay Rays/Matt Andriese

Distance: 446 feet

Who would’ve thought that Aaron Judge would hit a home run on his MLB debut, and it being one of the longest of his career? What a way to start a story, especially in the Bronx. Any ball that is hit into Monument Park is a bomb, but this one hit the windows of the restaurant above it!

#4 – April 19, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Chicago White Sox/Dylan Covey

Distance: 541 feet

The New York Yankees already had a big lead in this game and Judge put the icing on the cake with this bomb. In the bottom of the fifth inning, he took a hanging offspeed more than halfway up the left-field bleachers.

#3 – May 14, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Houston Astros/Mike Fiers

Distance: 457 feet

Everyone knows how this season ended for the Houston Astros and the heartbreaking end for the Yankees, but watching this bomb from Judge is so satisfying coming off the Astros. On an 83MPH pitch from Mike Fiers up in the zone, Judge smacked this one off the restaurant above Monument Park.

#2 – April 22, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Pittsburg Pirates/Antonio Bastardo

Distance: 460 feet

This one, at first glance, could seem like it isn’t that deep compared to the others. However, when you notice the “410 feet” sign on the left-field wall, you realize how hard it is to hit a ball out of PNC Park in left-center field. Judge took an 89MPH pitch right down the heart of the plate 460 feet to extend the Yankees lead.

#1 – June 11, 2017

Opposing team/pitcher: Baltimore Orioles/Logan Verrett

Distance: 495 feet

430 feet? Yawn. 450 feet? I’ve seen it. Almost 500 feet? Well, that’s the longest home run to ever be hit since ESPN started tracking distance since 2009. Judge became the third player to hit a ball over 490 feet, standing with Wladimir Balentien and Giancarlo Stanton – who’s done it three times.
