I have no words to describe this Aaron Judge bomb.

NEW YORK — Holy Mackerel, Aaron Judge!
When the right fielder gets it all, he gets it all!
The 6-foot-7, 282-pound rookie slugger hit the longest homer of his short big-league, career Wednesday night, a 448-foot blast to left field off Chicago White Sox righty Dylan Covey that looked like it was going to carry out of Yankee Stadium.
Judge’s bomb gave the Yankees an 8-1 fifth-inning lead and came one batter after second baseman Starlin Castro hit a three-run homer off Covey.
As usual, Judge put his head down and went into his home run jog instead of watching his tape-measure homer.
“I just run, to be honest,” Judge said earlier this month after a hitting a long home run. “When I hit them, I just start running the bases because you never know what can happen. The wind can knock it down. Something can happen. I’m just going to make sure I’m always running.”
The homer was Judge’s fifth in 14 games this season and the ninth in 28 career games. His 12 RBIs this season lead the Yankees.
His latest homer traveled two feet further than his previous longest as a big leaguer. In his first big-league at-bat last August, he hit a 446-foot homer to center at Yankee Stadium against off Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Matt Andriese.
