Aaron Judges batting practice sessions have become appointment viewing, as he proved again Thursday before the Yankees 12-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Judge sent a pitch 510 feet into the Rogers Centre seats, a blast that left just about everyone in awe.

The Yankees moved Judge up to the No. 3 spot in the batting order prior to the game, and the resulting 12-run outburst was their highest scoring total since April 29. Judge was just 1-for-4 with an RBI in the win, but Gary Sanchez (two homers) certainly benefited from having Judge hitting behind him.

As for the hits that actually count, Judges 17 homers lead the majors, and his 1.107 OPS ranks fourth.
