Watch: Sano hit one of the longest home runs in Target Field's history

Can anyone slow down Miguel Sano?

Fresh off his Player of the Week award, Miguel Sano picked up where he left off on Tuesday, parking this baseball 466 feet from home plate at Target Field.

He's just second player to hit a ball to the CATCH seats at Target Field. Byung-Ho Park was the other player and his was four feet shorter than Sano's.

Sano came into Tuesday's game leading the league in RBI and is among the league's best in a variety of offensive statistics.

Jim Thome still holds the record with a 490 foot home run back in 2011 but Sano's cracked the top five.
