1-on-1 with Giancarlo Stanton


If you've paid remote attention to the MLB over the last several seasons, then you're clearly aware that Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is known to hit a few baseballs onto the moon. Tuesday night, it happened again.

It opened up the scoring in the first inning against the Cardinals, and made Marlins Park, a ball field roughly the size of Texas, look like a ban box.

ESPN Home Run Tracker estimated the true distance at 484 feet,tying his own mark for an MLB season-high. The $325 million man has jacked a whopping seven bombs over 450 feet so far this year.

It was Stanton's 26th home run of the season, pacing him towards 59 -- which would mark the highest single-season total since Barry Bonds' record-breaking 73 in 2001.
