New York Yankees star Aaron Judge is poised to make history this week as he chases Roger Maris’ elusive home run record.
Judge slammed home run number 60 Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium, putting him within one round trip shy of Maris’ record of 61 long-balls in a single season. That record was set back in 1961, and as stood as the Major League mark for 37 years.

Will Aaron Judge Break Maris’ Record?
It seems to be a matter of when and not if Aaron Judge will break Roger Maris’ home run record. If the All-Star outfielder doesn’t do it this week versus the Red Sox, there’s still a week of baseball left in the 2022 MLB Season.
Only five players had hit 60 home runs in a single season in the history of the major leagues. With his 60th dinger Tuesday, Judge joined Babe Ruth, Maris, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.
