Aaron Judge and Joe DiMaggio. What do these New York Yankees have in common? Well, after Judge walloped his 29th home run of the season, he’s tied up with the Yankees great for most home runs ever by a rookie wearing pinstripes.

The scary part is, we’re just now getting into the first week of July. At Judge’s current pace, it’s not crazy to think he’ll go well past 60 by the end of the season if he stays healthy.

Judge is really setting himself apart from the sluggers of this era. Using every bit of power he can generate from his 6-foot-7 frame, he’s sending balls out of stadiums faster than anyone else in the game today.
