Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton played a rousing game of homer H-O-R-S-E in BP at Tropicana Field

Having dominated the 2017 Home Run Derby at Marlins Park, Aaron Judge crushing monster homers in batting practice is almost old news at this point. That doesn't make it any less special when he puts on a show at a different location, though -- even in the same state.
Prior to the Yankees' 4-0 victory on Tuesday against the Rays, Judge put his pop on display with a 483-foot shot to center that looked like it might never land:

It did come to rest eventually in the area just in front of the camera well at the ballpark's back wall.
Not to be outdone, 2016 Home Run Derby champion Giancarlo Stanton countered Judge with some titanic taters of his own:

These parts of the Trop are not often visited, but that's what can happen when the top home run leaders from last year essentially put on their own rendition of batting practice H-O-R-S-E.
Stanton probably wins this round since his center-field shot hit the scoreboard behind the camera well.

Agreed, Aaron.
