Since December, we’ve imagined a New York Yankees lineup with the newly acquired Giancarlo Stanton hitting next to Aaron Judge. That’s the top two home-run hitters in MLB last season, a combined 111 homers between them.
On Monday, we got our first taste of it. At Yankees spring camp, Stanton and Judge did their first joint batting-practice session and while they didn’t 111 homers, they did still manage to put on a show. The eager crowd that cheered like it was watching the Home Run Derby, not a February BP session.
This video from NJ.com captures the biggest homers from each star — Judge hitting one out of the stadium and Stanton hitting the top of the Yankees’ scoreboard:
Wowzer, right? Here’s a detailed shot of where Stanton’s homer hit:

Afterward, new Yankees skipper Aaron Boone spoke like a man who has the luxury of putting the two biggest sluggers in baseball in his lineup every day:
“I think there’s something cool and sexy about seeing the long ball in batting practice.”

If that’s the case, it’s gonna be a sexy year in the Bronx.
