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.”

Aaron Judge’s baseball career has seen nothing short of a meteoric rise this year. He scored the most home runs by a rookie and has won over baseball fans everywhere. The superstar’s stately last name has also brought about a slew of  souvenirs and fan rituals. A section in the right-field bleachers at Yankee Stadium has been christened the “Judge’s Chambers,” where fans often don judge’s robes, barristers’ wigs and hold signs reading “All Rise.”
