New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has been somewhat hot recently. Fresh off hitting a grand slam earlier in the week, the reigning NL MVP did something even more impressive Thursday evening against the Texas Rangers.
Per MLB.com, Stanton legimitaley just hit the hardest home run ever recorded. This isn’t a drill. Check it out below.

It goes without saying that Stanton completely turned on the low outside pitch from Texas Rangers starter Ariel Jurado.
According to Statcast, the ball traveled at a velocity of 121.7 miles-per-hour. That’s next level stuff from Stanton right there.
