This Is How Cap Aaron Judge Can Become The Home Run Leader In 2024 MLB Season!

Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees heart, is widely regarded as the home run king of MLB. He earned that accolade when he smashed an all-time high homer record in 2022. Judge slammed 62 long hits in 2022 to become the only slugger with the most home runs in a singular MLB season.

However, in 2023, the tables turned. Aaron Judge was on the same trajectory as the 2022 season until a gruesome injury cut short his season. After his toe ligament was ruptured, the Yankees captain ended up missing eight weeks, which affected his home run count for the season. Nonetheless, ahead of the new season, Judge has been touted to recreate an extraordinary feat with his splashing home run-hitting ability.
