Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit two monstrous home runs last night against the Phillies, with one traveling an estimated 469 feet. Stanton has been crushing bombs since arriving in the Majors.
Check out the nine longest homers of his young career.

I enjoy watching this kid hit. It will be awesome to see him participate in the Home Run Derby one day, and every at-bat is must-see TV.
