Aaron Judge continues his hot streak


Evan W.

Aaron Judge’s career has been a rollercoaster. Judge’s rookie year was one to remember for any MLB fan. Playing 155 games during his rookie season, Aaron Judge had a batting average of .284. Although that wasn’t the league’s highest batting average, Judge led the American League in home runs. In just his rookie season Judge hit an amazing 52 home runs, just 7 shy of the National League record.He also won the AL rookie of the year award beating out star Andrew Benintendi. Aaron Judge came in second in the AL MVP rankings just in his rookie season. Aaron Judge’s next few seasons were not his best. He was struggling with his hitting. His homerun performance was nowhere near his rookie season. Last season in 2021, his career started looking more promising, hitting 39 home runs. In this season, Aaron Judge is looking to break the American League record. The record is held by Roger Maris, sitting at 61. Judge is at 59 with 16 games remaining in the regular season, with just 2 home runs away from tying the AL record. Aaron Judge is in the lead of the AL MVP race right now and I think will win at the end of the year. Aaron Judge has really proved himself this season. No matter where Aaron Judge signs next season, Aaron Judge is a star and will be one of the best players to play in the MLB.
