The waiting time between Aaron Judge’s 61st home run and his 62nd felt like an eternity, but it finally arrived right in the first inning of New York’s game versus the Rangers.

There were concerns about Aaron Judge running out of enough time to break Maris’ record, as the last home run he hit prior to the Rangers game was on Sep. 28 against the Toronto Blue Jays. Before that, baseball fans saw Aaron Judge go homer-less in seven consecutive contests after hitting his 60th of the year.

With the record now out of the way, the pressure is completely off the shoulders of Aaron Judge, who can still add to his home run total with at-bats coming up for him Tuesday and with the Yankees still to play their regular-season finale Wednesday.

With or without the record-breaking home run, Aaron Judge has already authored one of the greatest individual seasons ever in the history of Major League Baseball. Even during the long stretches when he was not hitting home runs, he consistently got on base and put the Yankees in positions to score runs. With the record in the bag, Judge can turn his full attention to achieving the ultimate goal with the Yankees which is to bring home a World Series title.
