Aaron Judge surpasses Joe DiMaggio's Yankees single-season rookie home run record

Terry Francona out for All Star Game after undergoing heart procedure

New York Yankees Aaron Judge watches his fifth-inning solo home run in the team's baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers in New York, Friday, July 7, 2017.

"Probably when my career is over, to be honest, because this game will humble you quick", said Judge, who has reached base in 37 straight games he has started, not including the game he went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter.

Aaron Judge homered his way into the Yankees' history books on Friday night, recording his 30th home run to surpass the 29-home run record DiMaggio set during his rookie year.

Joe DiMaggio's 1936 record of 29 home runs had remained the high watermark for any NY rookie, but Judge has broken that long-standing record before the All-Star Break.

"It's quite an honor", Judge said. McGwire had 33 homers at the break in 1987. "It has been a fun first half so far".

He also pointed out that holding a party election so close to a general election was not common practice for any political party. In a statement yesterday, RoS director-general Mohammad Razin Abdullah said the agency had to act in light of such complaints.

Judge has two more games this weekend against the Brewers before the break.

Judge said baseball can humble a player quickly, and to remind himself of that fact, he keeps his.179 average from a year ago scribbled on his pregame notes. The home run, which traveled 432 feet, was Judge's MLB-best 12th home run this season to travel at least 430 feet.

On the season, Judge is hitting.330 with a major league-leading 30 homers and 66 RBIs.

"That's a pretty special name he passed", Joe Girardi added. "It is really incredible what he has done in the first half of this season".
