Jose Altuve obliterated a baseball onto the train tracks above Minute Maid Park

At 5-foot-6, Jose Altuve is one of the smallest players in baseball. Yet, time after time, year after year, the Astros superstar second baseman has proven that size means nothing. He has an MVP award, he has three batting titles, he has a World Series championship. And on Monday night against the Yankees, he catapulted a ball 448 feet away onto the Minute Maid Park train tracks.

Watch Masahiro Tanaka -- he can't even look at it. He shouldn't look at it.

Hitting a baseball out of the park is cool. Hitting one so far it bangs off some train tracks nearly 450 feet away is much, much cooler.
