Aaron Judge was right on schedule.
After doubting if he would hit another when he was in the high 30’s, Aaron Judge has again caught fire and put baseball on notice with a tremendous power tear. He hit two homers on Sunday to get to 48, and left himself with all week to hit one more to tie the record.
But just as it should have gone down, history happened at Yankee Stadium in front of the hometown fans on a Monday afternoon in the Bronx.
Here is the 49th, which tied Mark McGwire’s 1987 record of 49. This one got us excited.
And here is the record breaker. Aaron Judge’s 50th home run of the season.
All things considered, this was one of the more memorable and impressive power seasons in baseball history.
