“Congrats [Aaron Judge] on home run 62. History made, more history to make,” he tweeted.
With 62 home runs under his belt, Judge now holds the single-season home run record in the American League. However, he still trails a number of heavy hitters in the National League like Sammy Sosa and the single-season and all-time home run leader Barry Bonds.
Judge participated in New York’s doubleheader on Tuesday. As a result, it is unlikely he’ll push for number 63 on Wednesday when the Yankees play the Rangers in Texas this afternoon. Instead, he’ll set his sights on the Yankees’ first playoff game on October 11.
