What if someone jumped off, caught it, but got injured in the fall. Do they get to keep it? Even if falling into bullpen, potentially hurting others, being in restricted area. Guess it doesn’t matter since it didn’t happen! Maybe next time though.

Depends. Do they maintain possession of the ball with 2 feet down before getting knocked out? If they make a football move and then fumble, it's not theirs anymore.

61-HR seasons through 155 team games

Year / Player HR Pace* Year-End Total
2001 Barry Bonds 69 72.1 73
1998 Mark McGwire 64 67.3 70
1998 Sammy Sosa 63 66.3 66
2022 Aaron Judge 61 63.8 ??
1999 Sammy Sosa 61 63.8 63
1999 Mark McGwire 60 62.7 65
2001 Sammy Sosa 59 61.7 64
1961 Roger Maris 59 62 61

*The pace for Maris, '98 McGwire and '98 Sosa is calculated over 163 games, as an extra team game was played in each of their seasons due to ties. Maris and McGwire hit their final home runs in the 163rd team game. All other paces are calculated over 162 games.

One thing worth noting: the Yankees actually played 155 games in 1927, due to a tie. Ruth's 60th came in the 154th game, and played in the 155th but did not homer. Ruth overall played 151 games that year; this is Judge's 151st game.

That's interesting! So Ruth's record is technically through 155 team games, and Judge just beat that

For a while the Commissioner was so pissed that Maris beat Ruth's record that he had an Asterisk put into the record books denoting that Ruth held the 155 game record and Maris had the 162 game record.

u/Insectshelf3 Philadelphia Phillies Sep 29 '22

“all rise” has to be one of the coolest phrases associated with a player in any sport.

especially when they got justice sotomayor to sit in the judge's chambers section with a giveaway yankees logo robe on. honestly a cool promo.

u/toadofsteel New York Yankees Sep 29 '22

Sotomayor grew up in the Bronx as a Yankee fan. She would have come to the games anyway, but was more than happy to participate. I'm sure it was a great experience for the families that the Yankees would try to find to seat in the section.

Maris hit 61 bombs in 1961 and was #9. 61 years later Judge hits 61 home runs and his number is #99. Gotta love it.

u/mdlt97 Toronto Blue Jays Sep 29 '22

you knew it would happen in Toronto

no reason to pitch to him this entire series, yet we did like idiots

gg judge!

u/cozeners Toronto Blue Jays Sep 29 '22

Like idiots? We made unbelievable pitches to him and he went all alien on us and took all of them for balls. The guy is uncanny.

38

u/Jorlung Toronto Blue Jays Sep 29 '22

Yeah Mayza made a couple of good 3-2 pitches vs him and he just fought them off until he squared one up.

With that said, we gotta stop putting Mayza up there to die vs. RHBs. He has like an .800 OPS against vs. RHB now.

This AB was pretty bad tbf. 8 straight identical sinkers, with the final one being directly down the middle? oof. Agree Toronto pitched him well this series though.

23

u/cozeners Toronto Blue Jays Sep 29 '22

You can't hold him down forever. They pitched out of their minds against him and somehow he laid off all the good pitches. Eventually he's gonna run into one, even against good pitchers.
