New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge made baseball history Tuesday night (October 4) in Texas. The right fielder broke the American League’s record he shared with Roger Maris after hitting his 62nd home run of the season.

Judge previously tied Babe Ruth while playing against the Pirates on September 20. The 30-year-old hit the unforgettable home run in the first inning which landed in the hands of a Texas Rangers fan in the left-field stands.

The New York Yankees will wrap up the regular season playing the Rangers tomorrow at 4:05 pm and are scheduled to play their first playoff game on Tuesday, October 11.
