Update to Aaron Judge’s Wild Home Run Race on Sept. 20

For 61 years, American professional baseball right fielder Roger Maris’s 1961 single season home run record of 61 stood strong, the most home runs hit by a player without the use of steroids.
That was until Oct. 4, when outfielder Aaron Judge blasted his 62nd home run against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field. He crushed the ball to deep left field, traveling 391 feet and landing in a lucky fan’s glove, changing their life forever. Judge rounded the bases with a smile, meeting his teammates at home plate. He was welcomed with hugs from other players, as they congratulated him after an exciting season.
It was a huge relief for Judge, as he was understandably pressing for a home run as there were very few games left in the 2022 season.
Judge not only broke a regular season record, but also he looks to extend the Yankees season further by having a long playoff run and aiming for a World Series title.
