Roger Maris broke the legendary Babe Ruth's immortal home run record of 61 home runs, 61 year ago in 1961. I think you get the point. The stars have aligned and another New York Yankee has joined Maris in passing the Babe's best single season mark.
Every home run hit by Aaron Judge going forward is going to be a valuable historic baseball worth a lot of money. The 61st home run ball that ties the Roger Maris record will be huge, the 62nd that breaks the record will be huge, and then every homer thereafter will potentially have high value. Make sure you're ready by following these 7 points of advice.
Aaron Judge is on the verge of making history. New York Yankees fans have been enjoying most every minute of his incredible run. Yes Network, the television home of the Bronx Bombers, is enjoying their best Yankees viewership in 11 years. Now, it helps when your team wins almost every game for the first 3 months of the season but having your star outfielder chase legends like Babe Ruth and Roger Maris doesn't hurt either.
Could you imagine 30 year-old Babe Ruth hitting the free agent market in 2022? Would the "Sultan of Swat" been the first $500 million player? Would Brian Cashman be forced to break the bank for a player that most would consider the most popular baseball player over the last century? How does current New York Yankee, Aaron Judge compare to "The Bambino"?
Since the turn of the century, there have been some constants in New York sports. The Yankees are most likely to be pretty good and make the playoffs. The Giants will win a Super Bowl every decade or so. The Mets are bad, ok, good and then will collapse and now seem really good. The Jets are terrible and yes, they won on Sunday but have a long way to go before that classification is lifted. I will provide Robert Saleh a receipt for that statement for his files.
