Aaron Judge Home Run Tracker: First to 40 Homers

Published:

With a 449-foot blast to left-center on July 29, Aaron Judge of the Yankees became the primary player in Major League Baseball to succeed in 40 home runs this season. That shouldn’t come as a surprise since he was the primary to 10, 20 and 30 as well.

As Judge pursues the Yankees’ single-season home run record — every non-Yankee who has hit at the very least 60 home runs has been connected to performance-enhancing drugs — we’re tracking his progress against where Roger Maris was at in 1961 (when he hit 61) and where Babe Ruth was at in 1927 (when he hit 60).

Through 101 Team Games:

“It doesn’t stop to amaze the season he’s putting together,” Manager Aaron Boone said of Judge’s ninth-inning homer off Scott Barlow that gave the Yankees their only run of the day — and a walk-off win at home. Boone added: “Just gets a pitch and to place it up within the air where he did is just, not many individuals can hit it like that and ride it out like he did.”

“It doesn’t help while you throw it down the center to him,” Tyler Wells said of Judge, who got “M-V-P” chants despite the sport being played in Baltimore. “The primary home run I gave to him, I used to be attempting to go up there, and just didn’t get it in enough. The second, he just took a pitch right down the center and he hit a good distance.”
