Aaron Judge now leads the AL in batting average. What the fuck.


A_Blind_Alien

Imagine hitting #60 and taking the lead in the triple crown in the same swing What the fuck


frankyseven

Imagine people still arguing for someone else to win the MVP?


milkboxshow

I think we officially just passed the point where even the most ardent Ohtani supporters have to admit it's going to Judge.


frankyseven

I'm a die hard Yankee hater and even I have to admit he's the MVP.


Vegetable-Double

There’s no way you don’t give the MVP to someone who hits 60 home runs AND might win the triple crown. That’s mythological status. Type of seasons they talk about 50 years from now.


stuffandmorestuff

Aaron Judge slg - .703 League average *ops* - .708


JasperLamarCrabbb

THAT is a crazy statistic


PaulPierceOldestSon

First blue jays flair upvote of the season


frankyseven

Thank you for your sacrifice, that must have been very difficult for you.


PaulPierceOldestSon

I didn’t burst into flames so it went better than expected


DJ_Vault_Boy

My person point was if Judge hit 55, but him leading the AL in OBP, RBI, OPS, and War gave it to him. I love Ohtani, I’m sure he’ll win MVP again if he does it again. But we’re witnessing the best hitting season since the steroid era.


RulersBack

He's going to win the triple crown despite not being a horse Edit: [Better than Mantle](https://youtu.be/v9C8HuwTC7Y)


FeloniousDrunk101

Can we confirm he’a not at least *part* horse?


voncornhole2

He got that horse in him

Mr. Hands, no!

60-HR seasons through 147 team games Year / Player | HR | Pace* | Year-End Total ---|---|---|--- 2001 Barry Bonds|64|70.5|73 1998 Mark McGwire|62|68.3|70 2022 Aaron Judge|60|66.1|?? 1999 Sammy Sosa|59|65|63 1998 Sammy Sosa|58|63.9|66 1961 Roger Maris|56|61.7|61 1999 Mark McGwire|56|61.7|65 2001 Sammy Sosa|55|60.6|64 1927 Babe Ruth|54|56.6|60 *Several of these seasons featured 163 team games due to ties, and the players hit home runs in the final game. However, the pace here is calculated over a 162-game season, or 154 for Ruth.


NevermoreSEA

60 home runs is genuinely so absurd to think about.


drparkland

besides for the 3 guys who did it 6 times over 4 years with chemical assistance, it hasnt happened in 61 years. LOT of individual seasons of a LOT of great players in those 61 years. wild.


RestartingMyLife0918

It taking 61 years to cleanly break the record of 61 home runs in a season is such a perfect baseball stat.


drparkland

and that record was set in 1961


Atheose_Writing

So 7 more games to get one HR (to break Ruth’s record in 154 games)


cjn13

Judge*, coming to a theater near you


TheTrueMilo

Starring Barry Pepper as Aaron Judge and Tom Jane as Mickey Mantle. Directed by Billy Crystal.


klawehtgod

Setting the steroid-free record in 154 games would be absolutely incredible


OUTFOXEM

Yes. This is what I’m hoping for. Maris’s record always was looked at with an asterisk because of the 162 game season. So if Judge can beat both 60 in 154 and also hit 62 then he’s checked all the boxes. Can he also add a Triple Crown to it as well? Here’s hoping!


dont_yell_at_me

Wowow I totally forgot sosa hit 60+ 3!!!! Times


DanyDud3

And never led the league in HR


DamienJaxx

The juiced up HR competition between him and McGwire was fun to watch though.


senorgraves

Everyone always says that but never mentions Ken Griffey Jr. It was a three horse race for a while. Griffey always was a few behind but still kept pace most of the season. Ended on 56 two years in a row. And he was a way more fun player than the other 2


homiej420

Yeah KGJ was far more fun than them


chickentowngabagool

sammys HR jump was my favorite. loved griffey too


TheVaniloquence

Brought the sport and league back into the limelight after the strike left a sour taste in everyone’s mouths. It’s a shame those guys will never get the credit, even though Selig is in the Hall of Fame and had no problem with them juicing when they were pulling in insane viewership.


voldemortslayer

3rd fastest to 60

interesting to see almost all these guys outperformed their pace

I think a Stanton walk off grand slam might do it.

With a walk off grand slam after it

Can we show this comment on Yankees Classics? ❤️


BorinUltimatum

It's okay, we get the walk-off now. edit : told ya


YoMrPoPo

Wtf 😳


zOmgFishes

Holmes blew it so they would pitch to Judge. Great teammate.


floreader

4d chess


necrosythe

Or don't. That score and no men on is why he got a pitch to hit!


muzunguman

It's also why there's so many empty seats there. Imagine leaving early to miss #60 Edit: and now they missed a walk off grand slam. Brutal


necrosythe

I'd be kicking myself if I did that lmao. Craziness. Not quite the 62 but still. I guess beating the traffic, even be it public transit is tempting


gimmer0074

told myself I’d leave after Judges last at bat cause watching the 9th in a 4 run game isn’t worth the nightmare subway ride, but I’m still here and glad I am


muzunguman

I'd say that it was DEFINITELY worth your time staying now lol


MartianMule

Still the first guy in over 60 years to hit 60 in the AL.


HenryR20

My boy is at the game. Took a piss break during the AB.


mp1982

Reminds me of my friend who took a bathroom break right before boone’s HR in the 03 ALCS. He started peeing right before that pitch and was still peeing when the game was over lol


muzunguman

Of all the times to take a piss lol


BIG_DICK_WHITT

Tank for ~~Tua~~ Judge


Tashre

As soon as the Pirates went up by 4 in the 8th and the Yankees ensured Judge's next AB would have nobody on, I knew he was going to go yard.


Srikkk

The only scoreboard that matters is the one with 60 on it


roaringcorgi

but we can talk about the Phillies/Blue Jays game later


Humble_Animal_998

No! But also, good for Judge. Happy for him.


TheTurtleShepard

I am also happy for Judge, at least there was some good this game between #60 and Bader coming back and playing well


Humble_Animal_998

It's an amazing moment for an amazing player. No matter what team we support, we gotta give him a round of applause. Edit: Holy shit, what an amazing win.

But that's the best part of this video EDIT: The pirates are causing pain to more than just Pirates fans tonight...

[He's the new batting leader too!!! So currently he has the Triple Crown!](https://www.reddit.com/r/NYYankees/comments/xjkkha/game_thread_pirates_yankees_september_20_2022/ipa3k6v)


Sirliftalot35

Is this the most HRs anyone has ever had while holding the Triple Crown? I know Mantle's 52 HRs is the most in an actual Triple Crown season, but has anyone with 61+ HRs actually led the Triple Crown at any point? I know Maris didn't, Sosa didn't, and Bonds didn't, so I guess nobody has.


voncornhole2

[Mantle's 52 is the record](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_Crown_(baseball\))


Apellosine

There's not a lot of seasons to check for guys with 60+ HRs


Dinobot2_

Pfft, everyone knows the real triple crown is AVG/OBP/SLG ...Oh shit, he has the lead in all of those too.


your_catfish_friend

Quintuple crown?


AhLibLibLib

PavWrestlinGifs

That might be one of the sexiest, most satisfying home runs I’ve ever seen. What a swing 😍


CenaSucks

That’s been damn near every single one. His swing has been gorgeous this year, and definitely part of why he’s knocking them like this.


I_banged_your_mod

It really has. He's so locked in. If he times *anything* right its crushed.


ilikeslamdunks

Literally just switched over from the Jays game and boom. Amazing.

This man is going to get PAID

HE IS NOW LEADING IN BATTING AVERAGE Judge is at 316, Bogaerts 315, Arraez 314!!!

Babe wake up, Judge has as many home runs as you.

Is this the thread?

All these Judge threads look the same.

MC620

chills. there’s something mindboggling about seeing a 60 in anyone’s HR column, we’re literally witnessing history being written in front of us.


797java

He sensed Schwarber hit 40, and realized someone was within 20, and that couldn't stand On a serious note, i feel so lucky to have seen this happen, i thought that first strike was his pitch to hit, and he'd just walk, but thank goodness we got to see that.

3-1 down the cock will do!

I'm sure the apple announcers would be stoked in their calling of this shot /s Edit: clarification


cooljammer00

Now they might get 61 or 62 though


Frigidevil

Fuck that, he's gonna hit both tomorrow. In an unrelated coincidence I'll also be in attendance tomorrow.


finbar717

Heard on the radio earlier that if you get checked for prostate cancer outside section 220 tomorrow you'll get tickets to 2 games next year. Idk if you need to be a male over 40, but if you are it's an awesome deal


AhandWITHOUTfingers

Good News: Here are tickets to two games next year. Bad News: You might want to write them in your will. Enjoy the game!


D4rkest

They still have a chance calling #61, #62, and/or #63


TheMe63

That Apple tv game isn’t till friday lmao this was the YES network crew


necrosythe

Yeah I think he's saying the apple TV guys are happy they won't be broadcasting when he can hit 60. But he could hit 62 on the apple TV cast...


Abyss333333

Lmao I really wonder what the idea was behind that pitch.


Jam5467

3-1 up by 4 runs… pretty simple. Respect to Crowe for challenging


az116

I've seen this comment in every thread for Judge's past 20 home runs.


see_mohn

Up by four runs, a homer is functionally the same as a walk in this spot, might as well try to get him out.


Bradcam3

Pitcher has balloon sized balls so he decided to do everyone a favour and groove one

juice06870

Happy for Judge even though I am a Red Sox fan. This is a hell of a season. And as far as I am concerned the first legit 60 hr season since 1961.


_Jackie_Daytona_

First non steroid 60 home run season in 61 years


3_Mighty_Ninja_Ducks

That's crazy. He's gonna break the record of 61, that happened in '61, 61 years ago. What the fuck.


yankeefan03

A Very baseball stat haha


OutsiderSubtype

Also of course Maris wore #9 and Judge wears #99


[deleted]

[удалено]


spoonfedsam

he's hitting #61 tomorrow and 62 before friday, count it


11th_Plague

Congrats, Judge.


_The_Eclectic_One_

Absolutely fantastic, not only do I hope he hits 62+ but I also hope he wins the Triple Crown. He’s having one of the greatest offensive seasons of all-time and deserves it!


wangjor

Holy fuck we really just blew it. What a way to be part of history


allegrettiphoto

Such rich history between our two teams, I wouldn’t want it to be anybody else


greatwalrus

Even counting steroid users, he's only the sixth player to have a 60 HR season. That's rarer than a perfect game, an unassisted triple play, or hitting two grand slams in a game.


SubElitePerformance

#Aaron Judge hit 60 and it wasn’t even the best homer of the night!


betterthanyou31

He’s now leading the AL in average too 👀


Sirliftalot35

Babe Ruth. Roger Maris. Aaron Judge. WOW. ​ What a season. We're looking at 60+ HRs, a 200+ OPS+ and wRC+, 10+ bWAR and fWAR, and a shot at the Triple Crown. Truly a season for the ages. ​ Edit: if he can win the Triple Crown, it'd be the most HRs in a Triple Crown season, surpassing Mantle's 52 HRs in 1956.


icticus2

so cool that it’s a yankee doing it after babe and maris


reef3rm4dness

Congrats you won


nyy22592

Easiest 15k karma of op's life


UnchainedSora

With this homer, Judge is currently leading the AL in batting average. He's now in first place in all three Triple Crown categories.


MrNostalgic

He did it, the crazy son of a bitch did it


beefdx

That was a great game, ended by a very depressing, but rather expected outcome... Unless you're a Yankees fan, then I'm sure it was a great time all around.
