    Will Aaron Judge be the player to hit the first homer out of Yankee Stadium ?

    I know it's very early in his career but could Judge be the one to make baseball history in the Bronx? Just a thought after watching the huge homer he hit last night. Corect me if I'm wrong but I don't think a right handed batter has ever done in either Yankee Stadium.

    No one has hit a ball out of YS (old or new). Mantle came the closest

    The only thing better than watching Judge in games might be watching him take batting practice. He routinely drives the ball to the deepest reaches of the ballpark and has even hit one offering completely out of Yankee Stadium.

    Its like watching McGwire take batting practice, a scout from a National League team said, referring to retired slugger Mark McGwire. Youre never ceased to be amazed at far the kid can hit a ball. Hes special. You dont see his kind of raw power every day.

    They really should televise his BP sessions.

    NO! Don't let him near the HR derby -- there will be more holes in his swing for the rest of the year.

    I don't know about any truth to this claim (HR derby ruining a swing)


    Is there any evidence to it up?

    YES does with their BP practice show that comes on 30 minutes before the pregame show.

    Take the homer he hit last, which is probably close to the farthest he can hit a ball. Add just a little distance for even better timing, then add a gale force wind that sometimes blows out to left. When all that comes together he'll hit it completely out.

    It would be interesting to know what Mantle's exit velocities were back in the day.

    I bet they were as good as the best today or better.

    Actually they said it had been done in batting practice on several occcasions (at the old remodeled stadium) through that open alleyway in RF where the the grandstand met the bleachers. I distinctly recall seeing a video clip showing Bernie hitting one out through that gap during batting practice.

    Hard to say. Baseballs may have been a bit softer, bats a little harder, pitchers throwing a few less MPH.

    Josh Hamilton came within a foot or two of putting one over the back wall just to the left of the grandstand in right during the '08 home run derby.

    Don't think it's possible too hit a ball out of the current park. Outer wall to high. By the way it's possible that Babe Ruth could have hit one completely out of the original Stadium since they triple deck stands in RF where not put in untill 1938. Mantle's HR would have left the park had he hit in the 1920's.

    On a good night, he could be out of the Stadium and cursing at fans 4.6 minutes after the game ended. 8.2 minutes later he'd be downing his third shot.

    I thought Strawberry hit one out a while back. Maybe during bp?

    what bub said. give a strong wind, slightly higher trajectory and hotter weather.

    the ball needs to go to this area, but that angle is pretty ideal for pulling the ball hard so it works out.

    I believe Bernie Williams also hit one out during batting practice.

    In an actual game, nah....during BP probably. I think he will be the first to hit one over the batters eye up on to the standing room area they have there in a game.
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    It's too bad you can't watch Yankees batting practice in person anymore. Would be fun to watch how far Judge could hit the ball.
