With 15 games remaining, Roger Maris' American League record of 61 home runs is within striking distance of being broken by the young Judge.

The Yankees outfielder hit his 60th home run of the year against the Pirates on Tuesday. The Yankees outfielder has had a great season at the plate, batting.316 and scoring 128 runs. He is one of the reasons the Yankees are in a good spot.

Until Mark McGwire hit 70 in 1998, the single-season record for all MLB was held by Roger Maris, who hit 20 homers in 1961.

The baseball world is riveted by Judge's attempt to reach 62. He is hitting home runs until the end of the season.

There is a place where Judge stands in his pursuit of baseball history.
