Tracking New York Yankees star Aaron Judge's chase for 62 home runs

Baseball history is on the horizon as Aaron Judge approaches Roger Maris' American League record of 61 home runs with 15 games remaining.

The New York Yankees outfielder came one step closer Tuesday night with his 60th home run of the year against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Yankees outfielder has had an outstanding season at the plate, batting .316 and logging 128 RBIs. He is one of the reasons New York is among MLB's elite entering the stretch run.

Judge needs only two home runs to break Maris' 1961 record -- a mark that has stood for six decades and, until Mark McGwire hit 70 in 1998, was the single-season record for all MLB.
