Aaron Hicks hit the Yankees's first inside-the-park home run in seven years on Friday night against the Tigers.
The homer came in the second inning off of Mike Fiers, putting the Yankees up 2–0. The hit bounced off of the right field wall and into center field, giving Hicks and Gary Sanchez plenty of time to round the bases.
It was the first inside-the-park home run for the Yankees since Curtis Granderson's on Aug. 21, 2011, against the Twins.

New York went on to win the game, 8–6.
