The baseball world has entered an era of good feelings. All the usual whining about spoiled, tattooed punks who can’t paint and don’t respect the game will be suspended for the next few weeks. This happens regularly when a respected player is about to make history.
Aaron Judge, the genius hitter of the New York Yankees, blew his 60th home run of the season on Monday. In the American League only other Yankees Babe Ruth and Roger Maris have met so many round travelers in one year. Ruth did it in 1927 when the baseball season was only 154 games. Maris did it in 1961 in the 159th game of a 162-game season.
