VIDEO: Gary Sanchez Hits Mammoth 481-Foot Home Run Against the Astros

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was just named an All-Star game finalist, and we're starting to see why. In a game against the Houston Astros, Sanchez stepped up to the plate and smashed an 82 mph changeup deep into the left center field crowd, putting the Yankees up 2-0 at the bottom of the third inning.

This is Sanchez's 23rd homer of the season as the catcher is hitting a .269 BA, much improved from last season's .186.

With plays like this, Sanchez is showing Yankees fans that he's on his way to living up to his potential after a tough 2018.
