Watch: Aaron Judge homer sets Statcast-era record for exit velocity

2:11 | MLB
Can Aaron Judge live up to Derek Jeter comparison?
Saturday June 10th, 2017

Aaron Judge is the new, large, powerful face of the Yankees, and he hit a ball very hard and far on Saturday.

The home run that Judge hit against the Orioles set a Statcast-era (past three seasons) record for exit velocity at 121.1 miles per hour off his bat (and into the far recesses of Yankee Stadium).

It went 382 feet.

We should appreciate this man.
