New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge (99) smiles after hitting a home run to left field off Texas Rangers starting pitcher Jesus Tinoco (63) during the first inning of a game at Globe Life Field, Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022 in Arlington, Texas. Judge broke the American League single season record with his 62nd home run.
