Season 2022 of MLB will always be remembered for a great performance Judge Aron with New York Yankeesas he has added his name to the history books as the sixth player in Champions League history to hit 60 locals in the regular season, just in the final year of his contract, with a million-dollar renovation looming and a bad injury history.
Judge brought Yankee Stadium to its feet in the bottom of the ninth with his solo home run to make it 8-5 against Pittsburgh Piratesand thus began a rally that completed an epic for the Bronx Bombers, who ended up winning the game 9-8 thanks to a grand slam Giancarlo Stantonand thus support their partner’s efforts.
Judge and the historic home run 60
With another home run on his personal account, Judge became the third Yankee in history (dear Ruth in 1927 and Roger Maris in 1961) to homer at least 60 times, in addition to coming one time closer to tying Maris’ record for most home runs in a season in American League history, which has stood for 61 years.
With 16 games left in the regular season, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that the referee will be the sole owner of the legendary fact. As if that wasn’t enough, he is only the sixth player in Champions League history to reach 60 home games, a list where he shares space with Barry Bonds (73 in 2001), Mark McGwire (70 in 1998; 65 in 1999), Sammy Sosa (66 in 1998, 64 in 2001; 63 in 1999), Maris (61 in 1961) and Ruth (60 in 1927).
Judge and the quest for the triple crown
If he becomes the sixth player with at least 60 homers in a season, Aaron Judge is in contention to win the American League Triple Crown, leading the league in home runs (60), RBI (128) and batting average (.316). .
If he manages to end the season as the leader in the three leagues, he will be the first player since Miguel Cabrera in 2012, by achieving one of the toughest marks in professional sports, a situation that would help him gain the upper hand in the offseason in terms of negotiating a new long-term millionaire contract, either with the Yankees or at another computer.
