Aaron Judge: You never imagine as a kid your name with Yankee greats Ruth and Maris.

MLB home run record: List of baseball's single-season homer leaders as Aaron Judge hits No. 60.


Yankees slugger Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season on Tuesday night, in the Yankees' 147th game of the season. It is a truly historic campaign right now, as Judge leads the majors in home runs, RBI, runs, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS, OPS+, total bases, WAR and several other categories. He also leads the AL in batting average, meaning he's currently in line to be the Triple Crown winner. Only Miguel Cabrera in 2012 has done that since 1967.

Overall, Judge is hitting .316/.419/.703 (214 OPS+) with 60 home runs, 128 RBI, 123 runs, 16 stolen bases and 9.7 WAR. Nearly everything pops out from that line, but it's mostly the 60 homers.

One might have a few questions about that mark, so let's get down and dirty with the all-time leaderboards. Just the facts here.
