Aaron Judge hit his fourth home run of the season in the second inning of Monday’s game against the Miami Marlins. It was the 60th career home run for the New York Yankees star in his 197th game.
No player has ever done that.

As a comparison, Bonds and Aaron — who are first and second on the career home run list — had a combined 58 home runs through 197 games. Each man was at 29.
Mark McGwire who held the rookie home run record until Judge broke it in 2017, had 58 career home runs through that 197 games.
Judge has a long way to go before he can claim a career as good as Bonds, Aaron, or McGwire. But he’s certainly starting things off in impressive fashion.
