Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins is a stud in every form of the word. Besides not being hard on the eyes, Stanton’s prowess with a bat is exceptional. Last night was the Home Run Derby, and Stanton once again proved his worth when he almost hit a home run completely out of Target Field.
Stanton is only 24 years old and has already hit the second longest home run in the MLB this season and has another HR that ranks in this season’s top 10 longest.
