Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins hit a home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers that has the baseball world buzzing.

Stanton, who signed a $US325 million contract this past off-season, hit a first-inning cut fastball from Mike Bolsinger completely out of Dodger Stadium over the left field bleachers.

According to Molly Knight, Stanton is just the fifth player ever to hit a home run out of Dodger Stadium and the first since Mark McGwire in 1999.

The pitch was clocked at 85 mph. However, when the ball left the bat it was travelling at 114 mph according to ESPN’s home run tracker. Amazingly, the ball is said to have only travelled 467 feet, which makes it just the third-longest home run hit this season.
