Stadium Cheers As Aaron Judge Ties Franchise Record of Hitting 61 Home Runs

New York Yankee Aaron Judge on Wednesday matched the record set by Roger Maris with his 61st home run of the season.

The single-season American League home run record was set by Maris, a Yankee sporting the No. 9 jersey, in 1961. Judge, No. 99, matched the record 61 years later during an 8–3 win over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

A video shared by Troy N. Teague shows Judge running the bases after the hit. The crowd cheers as a short celebration breaks out at home plate.

After the game, Judge, 30, presented the historic ball to his mother, Patty, per reports.
