Jose Canseco hasn’t played in the MLB since 2001 and, four years later, forever tarnished his career when admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs during his career, but none of that is stopping him from claiming he could hit the ball harder than young Yankees superstar Aaron Judge.
I bet I can hit a softball further than Aaron judge can hit a baseball and I am 30 years older than he is

Judge has hit 35 home runs this season, with many of them towering. His longest home run of the season is 496 feet, so naturally, Twitter was skeptical.

Then again, this isn’t the craziest thing Canseco has tweeted, just another sign of a man living in the past.
