With apologies to Arnie, Monday night was the real Judge-ment Day.

New York Yankee Aaron Judge, who recently bested “Joltin’” Joe DiMaggio’s rookie home-run mark for the team, terminated his competition in last night’s Home Run Derby in Miami, smashing 47 homers in all—with an incredible four cresting 500 feet, per ESPN.

Judge notably bested the National League’s own rookie breakout slugger, Cody Bellinger, in the second round—and beat Minnesota Twins power-hitter Miguel Sanó for the win in the finals.
