BY Allyssa Lee • June 11, 2017

Yankees star Aaron Judge smashed a solo home run in the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday that has clocked in at the hardest-hit home run of 2017, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

The 121.07 mph blast was the hardest-hit home run not just of the season, but of the entire Statcast era.

The solo moonshot was the 25-year-old Judge's 19th of the season, which leads the league.

And Judge apparently set an example for the rest of his teammates with that home run: Starlin Castro, Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Matt Holliday also homered as the Yankees obliterated the Baltimore Orioles 16-3 to notch the Bronx Bombers' fourth straight win.
