The world of baseball has entered an era of good feelings. All the usual complaints about bratty, tattooed punks who can’t touch and don’t respect the game are on hold for the next few weeks. This happens periodically when a respected player is about to make history.
Aaron Judge, the incredible slugger for the New York Yankees, hit his 60th home run of the season on Monday. In the American League, only his Yankee teammates, Babe Ruth and roger maris they have hit so many commuters back and forth in a year. Ruth did it in 1927, when the baseball season was only 154 games long. Maris did it in 1961, in game 159 of a 162-game season.
