This is a selection of the five fastest home runs in the Big leagues since Statcast records them in 2015.
The fastest home run in the majors hit it Stanton on August 9, 2018 against the Texas Rangers, at Yankee Stadium. It was a hit at an important moment for the team, as Aaron Judge was out with a broken wrist.
The second-fastest home run is also from the Los Angeles-born slugger. He connected it on July 25, 2020, against a pitch by Erick Fedde, pitcher for the Washington Nationals and at Nationals Park. The projected distance from that hit was 483 feet, the longest Stanton has ever hit in a Yankees jersey.
For years the Yankees offense has been raging against the Baltimore Orioles, and for example is this Aaron Judge hit from June 10, 2017. That day the Yankees had 10 batters in the first inning against starter Chris Tillman. This homer was combined with his showing at the 2017 Home Run Derby to testify to Judge’s power.
It was this same year, in which Machado has been seen a bit in the shadow of the great performance of Fernando Tatís Jr., his teammate in the San Diego Padres. On August 20 and against the Philadelphia Phillies, Machado punished a pitch from left-hander Matt Moore and carried the ball over the left-field fence at Petco Park.
There is no doubt that 2017 was a great year for Judge. On April 28 of that year, he hit what is the second fastest home run of his career. That year Judge posted a 1,637 OPS against the Orioles, the second-best in history by any player against a single opponent.
