Generally speaking, fans on their way to get some food at Tony Luke's shouldn't have to worry about getting drilled with a home run ball. But, you see, Mr. Giancarlo Stanton is no ordinary slugger. Observe and enjoy the majesty:

That shot traveled an estimated 470 feet, making it the third longest home run of the season. Justin Upton's mammoth blast Thursday went 477 and Stanton hit one 484 on April 4.

Oh yeah, and Stanton hit another homer later in the game. He has some kind of power, this kid.
