Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season, tying Babe Ruth and moving within one of Roger Maris’ American League record 61, in the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday in the Yankees’ 9-8 comeback win over the Pirates start up. Stadium.

Longtime Yankees broadcasters John Sterling and Michael Kay may have displayed more emotion than the judges themselves after the historic long ball.


“There it goes! Deep left, high, far away, gone!” WFAN’s Sterling, who recently changed his schedule in light of the judge’s home run chase, began with his traditional long ball call.

“She’s got Babe! It’s a jazzy blast. Her 60th home run of the year. Awesome! All the growth! Here comes the judge!”

As for Kay of YES Network, who admitted that she had thought about his possible calls to numbers 61 and 62, she said “See you!” left to go.

“Drilled in deep to left field, there it goes, number 60,” Kay said. “Slide over, Babe. You have some company. Aaron James Judge ties George Herman ‘Babe’ Ruth to 60 home runs.”

It wasn’t until Giancarlo Stanton’s walk-off home run, capping the Yankees’ victory, that the judges unleashed their joy.

Kay and Sterling will both get a chance to make history once again against the Pirates on Wednesday before a set of four games with rival Red Sox. Kay, though, could be short if the judge goes deeper on Friday—the matchup with the Red Sox will take place on Apple TV+, which won’t play MLB.
