AARON JUDGE BREAKS American League single-season HOME RUN RECORD at 62

A fan leapt out of the stands in an effort to catch Aaron Judge‘s historic home run ball on Tuesday.

With one game left in the regular season, Judge hit home run No. 62 on the road in the second leg of a double-header against the Texas Rangers. The solo blast to left field off of Rangers pitcher Jesus Tinoco cemented Judge as the all-time single-season home run king in the AL, as he broke a tie with fellow New York Yankee Roger Maris.

The historic moment produced a very valuable souvenir for the lucky fan who was able to snag it, with experts predicting the ball could fetch upwards of $1 million on the memorabilia market.
