Giancarlo Stanton’s Laser-Beam Home Run Left Bat At 113.6 MPH (Video)

Giancarlo Stanton’s home run from Thursday’s game still hasn’t landed.

The Miami Marlins slugger has hit some skyscraping moonshots in his young career, but he opted for a different flight pattern in Philadelphia when he hit an absolute laser beam of a two-run homer off Phillies pitcher Justin De Fratus in the sixth inning.

That thing wouldn’t have just hit Fenway Park’s Green Monster. It would have gone through it.

According to ESPN’s Home Run tracker, the 369-foot homer left Stanton’s bat at 113.6 miles per hour. That’s almost 3 mph faster than David Ortiz’s mammoth Wednesday home run, which carried 445 feet.

Stanton’s blast also traveled at an absurd 124.2-degree angle, or the rough equivalent of a Shaquille O’Neal free throw.

Stanton’s fourth long ball of the year helped Miami cruise to a 9-1 win.
