Giancarlo Stanton hit a mammoth home run that has the baseball world buzzing

When healthy, there is no more feared slugger in Major League Baseball than Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins and on Friday night he reminded the baseball world just how much power he has in his bat.

The home run came off of Phillies reliever Hector Neris in the eighth inning with the score tied 4-4. MLB’s Statcast estimates that the ball came off of Stanton’s bat travelling 114 mph, went¬†475 feet, and needed only 5.5 seconds to leave the park.

Here is the video:


The home run proved to be big in more ways than one as the Marlins went on to win 6-4.
