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.

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.
