Aaron Judge

Aaron Judge is the outspokenly Christian outfielder for the New York Yankees who set the American League single-season home run record of 62 in a 162-game season, breaking the prior record set by Roger Maris that had stood for 61 years.[1]

Judge's record is particularly remarkable due to how he is a right-handed batter. The other top American League sluggers -- Babe Ruth and Roger Maris -- batted left-handed. As Judge trotted from third base to home plate on his record-setting home run, he pointed to the sky in honor of the Lord, as he typically does after a home run.[2]

His Twitter motto is "Christian. Faith, Family, then Baseball."[3] His favorite Bible verse is his Twitter banner: "For we walk by faith, not by sight,"[4] 2Corinthians 5:7 .

Judge's spectacular 2022 season led the New York Yankees to their first division title since 2019.[5]

Judge was adopted at birth.

Hostility by fans

As the Yankees were swept by the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, New York City fans began to boo Aaron Judge and other star players in the final two games in Yankee Stadium, which dismayed many of the players.[6]

Although three players have hit more than 61 home runs in a season, all three -- Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds -- were National League players, and are universally considered to have done so by using anabolic steroids, which although not illegal at the time provided an athletic advantage; baseball purists thus consider Maris to have previously held the legitimate Major League single-season home run record, and would now consider Judge the legitimate record holder.
