As we inch closer to the halfway mark of the season, we start to wonder where Aaron Judge’s final numbers will end up in this phenomenal rookie year.
The Yankees record book in the power categories is dominated by lefty sluggers like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, and the switch-hitting Mickey Mantle.
Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge hits a two-run home run in the sixth inning against the White Sox on June 28, 2017 in Chicago.
Since Mickey Mantle’s Triple Crown year in 1956, only three Yankees have won a batting title — Don Mattingly in 1984, Paul O’Neill in 1994, and Bernie Williams in 1998.
And as Brett Gardner pointed out to me, it’s only a matter of time before Judge starts using that 6-foot-7 frame to bring home run balls back over the fence like Dave Winfield used to and win himself a Gold Glove.
