Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton crushes 472-foot home run against A’s

Giancarlo Stanton’s second-half surge hit new heights, and so did the baseball he crushed in the fourth inning Friday night.

The Yankees slugger hit a mammoth 472-foot home run into the second deck in left-center field at Oakland Coliseum as the Yankees faced the Athletics. It was the longest homer hit by a Yankee this season and gave them a 1-0 lead against Oakland starter Sean Manaea.

Stanton, playing right field Friday night, has exploded at the plate since getting his glove back and no longer being a full-time DH. He now has 24 homers this season.
