Aaron Judge Sets Record for Most Home Runs by Yankees Rookie

Yankees rookie outfielder, Aaron Judge, has broken the record for the most home runs by a New York Yankees rookie. Joe DiMaggio held the former record. Judge broke this record by taking one deep for the 30th time last night against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Not only did Judge break this record, he did so before the half way point in the season.

When Judge came into the league, many doubted his ability due to his 6’7 282 lbs frame. Many credible scouts believed he would have trouble getting around on major league speed.

Judge has proved everyone wrong, however, and has done so in historic fashion. Alongside his 30 home runs, he has totaled a .330 average while adding close to 70 RBIs.

The rest of the league has taken notice of this young talent as he was selected for the American League All-Star team which will take place in the upcoming week.

Judge’s play, along with many other young talents around him, has led the Yankees to a 44-40 record which leaves them sitting in second place in the AL East and 4.5 games behind league rival Boston Red Sox.
