Aaron Judge Ties Babe Ruth!
The Judge has done it! He now is tied with the Sultan of Swat in most AL Homeruns in a single season with 60! With 16 games remaining, this puts him on pace to hit a total of 66. The only one ahead of him at this point is Roger Maris, who has held the record at 61 since 1961. What’s impressive as well, is the lead that Judge has on the next closest hitter in homeruns this season. Kyle Schwarber is behind him by 20!

Judge has really turned it up the last half of season, and if he can hold strong, he’ll win the AL Triple Crown. He currently is 1st in Batting Average (.316), 1st in Homeruns (60), and 1st in RBIs (128) for the American League.
