The legend of Aaron Judge continues to swell. On Sunday, the New York Yankees rookie blasted his 20th home run of the season, knocking it 495 feet, over the left-field wall.

This solo shot of the right arm of Logan Verrett put the Yankees up 8-3 over the Orioles.

It left Judge’s bat at 119 miles per hour, went 124 feet high and nearly hit the huge screen behind left-center field.

Judge continues to be a marvel in the batter’s box. He utilizes every ounce in his massive frame to eject balls at speeds nobody’s before seen in the Statcast era, and he’s just getting started.
