Giancarlo Stanton sends home run to another planet — ‘Planet Hoagie’  (VIDEO)

Giancarlo Stanton has hit some long long home runs during his four years with the Marlins.
But Wednesday night in Philadelphia, he sent a baseball to another planet — Planet Hoagie.

With his team trailing 3-1 in the sixth inning, Stanton crushed Evan Martin's 1-1 pitch so far over the left-center field wall it ended up hitting a concession stand with a sign that says "Planet Hoagie" in one of the upper decks of Citizens Bank Park.

Who ordered the No. 6 with mayo and a Rawlings?

ESPN's Home Run Tracker estimated the blast at 463 feet, but watching the video with the naked eye it looks like it was hit twice as far.

If the distance is accurate, Stanton's would be tied for 11th longest homer in the Majors this season.

Stanton has missed time due to injury this season, but now 23 home runs in 106 games. It was the 116th homer of his four-year career.

The 57-98 Marlins won the game 4-3 in 10 innings
