Joe had his rookie home run record tied tonight. Joe DiMaggio had 29 home runs his rookie year, most by a Yankee. Tonight Aaron Judge a Yankee rookie hit his 29th and we are just a little past the halfway mark :th_tapemouth.gif:

With today's climate change and considerin' baseballs travel farther in warmer weather, DiMaggio woulda probably had 39 by the halfway point if this was his rookie season... :thumb:

There are many theories on that, that could be one :happy0035: another is in todays age the long ball gets attention. Players don't mind striking out near as much as they use to and they load up on every swing hoping for that big hit. Homers get attention from scouts, lots of homers gets big contracts for the youngsters and so that's what they go for. Gone are the days for now of scatter hitters like Rose and Gwynn. You'll see players that hit 30 homers or 40 homers but have just .260 averages. If you ask pitchers about it they claim its the ball. Todays baseball they say has tighter laces, the laces ride low, almost imbedded in the leather rather than raised stitching like in years past these new balls have less air resistance and travel farther. Others attribute it to training , strength training and advanced swing mechanics and analysis the younger players use. like I say, many theories. One thing for sure in this age where they want to speed the game up home runs slow the game down. When someone homers, play stops, everybody stops while the batter takes a leisurely trot around the bases. Then they take a curtain call coming out of the dugout and tipping their hat. Earlier this season on one day seven grand slams were hit, a record, something that would have been unheard of years ago, seven slams in one day. Baseball is always evolving, who can predict what the game will be like in 2050, I can't. Clubs that want to limit the homers teams get against them will move fences back, making a larger playing field. Then teams will recruit players with speed that can cover the outfield rather than power and we'll see homers drop again. Its an endless cycle. I think the home run derby of the All Star game is tonight or tomorrow. Here's a preview http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/187525564/ ... e-hr-derby

Aaron Judge leads the league and is a favorite I would think, not bad for a rookie. he has 30 now at the halfway mark.

Aaron Judge did indeed win the Home Run Derby, they say he hit about 4 miles worth of home runs :surp:

Aaron Judge, last years rookie of the year, will rake in a salary of 612,000 this upcoming season. Players with less than three years can not go to salary arbitration and must have their salary determined by the team they have signed with. Must be nice playing for George and wearing those Yankee pinstripes. The guy is worth 15 or 20 times that easy in todays market. But maybe the yanks know something we don't know, lets see how he does next year, he may be a one hit wonder.
