Giancarlo Stanton destroys baseball with Home Run All-Star Game – NBC Chicago

Watch: Giancarlo Stanton destroys baseball with an All-Star Game homer originally appeared on NBC SportsBoston

There’s a lot of creative language one could use to describe a major league home run.

When it comes to Giancarlo Stanton’s homer at the 2022 MLB All-Star Game, it’s hard to find a word to do him justice.

The New York Yankees the outfielder tied Tuesday’s Summer Solstice Classic in the fourth inning with unhesitating ground to left center Los Angeles Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin.

The laser left Stanton’s bat at 112 mph and had a projected distance of 457 feet, which is somehow nearly 50 feet shorter than the longest home run of her career.

Stanton, Gonsolin and just about everyone at Dodger Stadium knew it was a home run from the start. Plate umpire Bill Miller had as good a view as anyone for the explosion, as seen at the end of the climax above.

As if the first-person perspective of Stanton’s power wasn’t enough, this freeze frame of his swing shows just how much he CRUSHED the ball:

Stanton brought home All-Star Game MVP honors thanks to the explosion of two points while the AL won his ninth consecutive game against the NL.

The Bronx Bomber will now bring power into the second half of the season as the AL-leading Yankees chase their first World Series title since 2009.
