Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge has had a heck of a season and now has made history today when he hit his 52nd home run of the season, which was his 33rd at Yankee Stadium. ESPN Stats and Info noted that Ruth’s record of 32 home runs at home was established in 1921.
And not only did he hit his 52nd home run but he hit it to a tune of 484 feet. This was the fourth longest home run of the 2017 season.
After a rough August that saw him strike out 41 times out of 116 appearances to the plate, the 25 year old has put together one of the more memorable Septembers. He broke Mark McGwire’s MLB rookie home run record this past Monday. Then came his fourth inning swing today that gave him 15 home runs and 32 RBI in September alone.
