New York Yankees outfielder and likely American Legue Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge has had himself a history-making season in the Big Apple.

Judge, 25, is currently hitting .275 with 38 homers and 85 RBI. Despite recent struggles, Judge is still on pace to potentially earn the American League MVP award.

We can now add another accomplishment to what is quickly becoming a laundry list. By drawing a walk against Dylan Bundy of the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, Judge became the first rookie to rack up 100 free passes since Jim Gilliam back in 1953.

According to ESPN, he is also now seven away from breaking Les Fleming’s record, which was set in 1942.

Judge is currently leading the American League in both strikeouts and walks. That puts him on pace to join yet another small group of players who have accomplished that feat.
