The Angels played a baseball game on Wednesday night, and that means Mike Trout did something awesome. And he didn’t wait long to do it.
With one out in the bottom of the first inning, Trout absolutely destroyed a Dylan Bundy pitch for a dinger. The home run was initially said to be a distance of… 524 feet. Wait, what?

Statcast wasn’t functioning correctly here, and that’s definitely not a 524-foot homer (though it did have a ridiculous exit velocity of 116.8 mph). But still another impressive blast from the best baseball player in the world.
The homer gives Trout 11 on the season, tying him with Mookie Betts — who hit three on Wednesday — for most in MLB.
