Aaron Judge Continues Historic Season, Breaks Joe DiMaggio’s Rookie Home Run Record

With a home run Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers, New York Yankees rookie outfielder Aaron Judge surpassed Joe DiMaggio for the most home runs for a rookie in franchise history. 

It's just the continuation of a season that has seen the All-Star and MVP candidate absolutely dominate in every possible way. 

Judge, 25, entered Saturday's action having posted a .330 average with 30 homers, 66 RBI and a .448 on-base percentage. He leads the AL in homers, OBP, walks, runs scored and extra-base hits. It's just extraordinary what Judge has been able to do this season. 

He's currently on pace to hit 58 homers, drive in 127 runs and collect 89 extra-base hits. Did we mention Judge is also on pace to score 145 runs. 

Needless to say, Judge is the front runner for the AL MVP. He's also been the most dominating fantasy performer in the game. And while some might expect regression here soon, the sample size is large enough to assume Judge will keep up at this clip when the second half of the season comes calling.
