Good morning it’s your Sports amigo Davey Mac here and as the late and great Yankee commentator Phil Rizzuto would say: “Holy cow!” Rizzuto played with and witnessed many a famous Yankee moment as former shortstop of the team and long-time announcer.
Think about it. “The Scooter” played with Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra…and was the announcer in 1961 when Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle were trying to break Babe Ruth’s record of 60 home runs in a single season.
Of course, Maris would attain that record…hitting 61 in ’61. And that record still remains a Yankee and American League record…61 years later.
But all of that history looks like it’s about to change.
And that’s because Aaron Judge is absolutely making history of his own this year. Judge crushed two more home runs yesterday…bringing his total to 59.
He is just one homer away from tying Babe Ruth’s career high. He is two home runs from tying the Yankee and A.L. record-holder in Roger Maris. And, of course, Judge is just three dingers from having the aforementioned records for himself.
What else can I say? I have never ever seen a season like this. When you factor in that Judge is hitting .316…it’s absolutely insane. Aaron Judge is putting a season for the ages…and I, for one, am honored to be witnessing it.
