The reason the New York Yankees are the most famous sports franchise in the world, is because they always produce stars. Enter Aaron Judge, the next New York Yankee superstar.
Judge became the ninth Yankee to win Rookie of the Year.

Judge, who hit a rookie-record 52 homers, received all 30 first-place votes in voting released by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. He became the first Yankee to be named Rookie of the Year since Derek Jeter in 1996.
“I’m still sitting back and trying to think about what happened this year,” Judge said on a conference call. “It was quite a journey. … With all of the ups and downs, I wouldn’t change anything that happened this year. It was an incredible year.”
