All Rise: Aaron Judge Crushes 2 Bombs, Makes History By Hitting Most Home Runs By A Rookie Ever

by 1 year ago

During an afternoon game at Yankee Stadium on Monday, Aaron judge crushed two home runs to give him the record for most home runs in a single season by a rookie. Judge came into the contest with 48 home runs, but stole the record when he slammed two home runs against the Kansas City Royals. Mark McGwire had held the HR title for rookies since 1987 when he blasted 49 home runs for the Oakland Athletics. In the third inning, Judge took Jakob Junis yard for his 49th dinger to tie McGwire.

Then Aaron was crowned the rookie home run king in the seventh when he took Trevor Cahill out of the park to notch his 50th tater.
