That was 2 days ago. Not really a record. His 61st will tie the American League record held by Roger Maris.

62 and he owns the American League record.

when he does it while partying all night and hung over,that will put him in the Big League!
And out of shape, over weight, drinking between innings, and smoking a stogie,...lol. Without physical trainers, nutritionists, and computerized swing analyst, as well.

And Ruth did it in the dead ball Era too.

Balls are so juiced now.
RIGHT FIELD was built for Ruth. I believe it was like 298 feet compared to the 318 now.
Actually, it's 314 to right in Yankee Stadium. Judge, and any other slugger could hit homeruns in that park almost at will. He happens to be the slugger fortunate enough to play 81 games there per season.

The pitchers were doing the same thing... Hell babe was a pitcher.
True. Babe wasn't just a pitcher, he was possibly as good a pitcher as hitter. if you extrapolate his stats from when he pitched he would have been a Hall of Fame pitcher.

Quite an athlete, too bad he didn't take better care of himself.

He wouldn’t even be relevant with todays talent lol.
Arguments like this are stupid. If today's players lived in the early 20th century, ate like Babe, drank like Babe, traveled like Babe, they'd have played at Babe's level. And if Babe was around today meeting with his nutritionist and personal trainer and physical therapist and studying game film, flying on planes and sleeping in swank hotels, he'd play at theirs.

Funny that Aaron Judge appears to be as good a ball player as Babe Ruth yet I'd never even heard of the guy until this thread. Find someone in the United States who hadn't heard of Babe Ruth by the time he set his record.

What's Aaron Judges overall batting average over his career? I'm sure no where near Ruths!
You'd be right.

342 for Babe ...
284 for Aaron Judge

But for arguments sake, Judge is still on his rookie contract. He's a free agent this next season coming up so he should have lots of time to improve on that batting average.
