The Yankees are playing in Anaheim and Aaron Judge has reached the 51-home run mark, even before the end of August.

It is exactly 61 years after the marvelous '61 season in which Roger Maris hit 61 home runs, breaking the then-single-season-record for round-trippers.

We all know what happened in subsequent years like 1998 and 2001.

Let's see if something legit can happen.

Judge hit No. 53 today! That gives him about a month more to reach 61/62.

And his 57th in the same game, too. Now it just seems the question is how far past 61 will he get?

And now he is at 60 home runs - the 6th player to reach that level in a season.

He was walked 3 times by the Red Sox in the first game of their series, last night!

I have been keeping an eye on every game this weekend they played. He had a good chance to do it on Sunday night baseball at home but now the Yankees are going on the road, so it looks like it will happen in Toronto where they play next.

Also, the way last night's game ended--rain-shorted, with him stranded on deck--simply delayed the suspense courtesy of mother nature.

Toronto walked him 4 times tonight! He might not see another pitch to hit the rest of the season!

Well guess what, he did. He has done it! All rise for Aaron Judge's 61st home run of the season. Now to get to 62 he will be all-time for the Yankees and all-time in the non PEDs era.

If he breaks the AL record - it will be on the road. His shot to do it at home is over.
