With pressure building, it’s definitely not as easy as it looks for Aaron Judge. Barry Bonds, the former MLB player who has 762 home runs to his name, also agrees that the 61st home run of Aaron Judge is going to be the toughest. It’s been five straight games since Judge has scored his last home run on September 20.

New York Yankees star player and potential Triple Crown winner, Aaron Judge smashed his 60th homer of the season last Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is tied with Babe Ruth. Currently, he is just one home-run short of tying with Roger Maris and just two homers away from creating history — hitting more than 61 home runs in a single season.

Barry Bonds joined ESPN’s show known as the “Kay-Rod Cast” to talk on the possibility of Aaron Judge tying with Roger Maris or surpass him and make history in the MLB. “Trying to get to that 61 is the hardest one,” said Barry Bonds. “Trying to get to that one. Once he gets to it, he’s probably going to hit five or six in a row after that.

According to controversial Barry Bond, Aaron will have to really focus on the game and play it cool. Once he’s there after that it’s gonna be like a piece of cake. “But trying to get to there, that’s the hardest one, that 61 is going to be the hardest. It’s a big moment on 61.” says Barry Bonds.

Fans around the globe are eager to celebrate the embryonic new record which Aaron Judge could break, adding another record to his name. Good luck Aaron Judge.
