Giancarlo Stanton hit another baseball into the solar system

1-on-1 with Giancarlo Stanton


By JOHN DORN

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.
