Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano got his 2017 season started with a blast Monday when he took a Danny Duffy pitch personally and sent it packing on a rocket ship to left field.
He knew it was gone as soon as the ball left his bat, and so did everyone else.
The exit velocity on this sucker was out of this world.
Miguel Sano's homer was his second-hardest hit of his career, according to Statcast, leaving the bat at 113.8 mph. His best is 114.2 mph.

Sano’s home run tied the game up at 1-1 as the Twins attempted to take down the Kansas City Royals in their home opener.
