All rise. Again, again and again. After saying that he just wanted to put on a show for the fans, Aaron Judge slammed nearly four miles of home runs on Monday evening at Marlins Park — including four of more than 500 feet — en route to being crowned the newest champion of the T-Mobile Home Run Derby.
Judge prevailed after overcoming 22 blasts from Justin Bour of the Marlins in the first round and a dozen long balls from the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger in the second. The 25-year-old Yankees outfielder then slammed 11 homers in the final round to defeat Miguel Sano of the Twins.
