Aaron Judge hit his 62nd homer of the time Tuesday night, breaking Roger Maris' American League record and setting what a few fans think about baseball's "clean" standard.
The 30-year-old Yankees slugger drove a 1-1 slider from Texas right-hander Jesús Tinoco into the several primary lines of seats in left field while opening the second round of New York's day-night doubleheader.
Maris' 61 for the Yankees in 1961 had been surpassed multiple times already; however, they were utterly spoiled by the smell of steroids. Mark McGwire hit 70 for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1998 and 65 the following year. Barry Bonds hit an MLB-record 73 for the San Francisco Monsters in 2001, and the Chicago Whelps' Sammy Sosa had 66, 65, and 63 during a four-season length beginning in 1998.
McGwire conceded utilizing restricted steroids, while Bonds and Sosa denied purposely using performing-improving medications. Major League Baseball began testing with punishments for PEDs in 2004, and a few fans — maybe numerous — as of not long ago have thought about Maris as holder of the genuine record.
