About the New York Yankees vs. the Boston Red Sox
Judge, heading into Friday's game, has hit 60 home runs on the season, which leaves him one short of Roger Maris’ record for single-season homers among American League players.
Maris also held the overall Major League record for 37 years, until it was broken by Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa in 1998. But because all of the players who have hit more than 61 homers in a season have been implicated in the use of performance-enhancing drugs, many fans see Maris’ record as the “real” one, and Judge’s chase as a push for that record as well.
That Judge could tie or break the record in a game played on Apple TV+ has been an issue of some consternation in the New York media. If Judge were to hit a historic homer on Friday night, that would mean that it would happen on a streaming broadcast and not on the YES Network, which shows most Yankees games. The concern is that older and less tech-savvy fans might not be able to figure out how to watch the game on Apple TV+.
Sportico’s John Wall Street newsletter went so far as to propose that the Yankees bench Judge on Friday night so that he would tie or break the record in a subsequent YES Network game. But there’s no indication that the Yankees would ever consider either making a victory less likely, much less depriving the home crowd of a chance to see Judge, just to make a point about broadcast rights.
