It’s everywhere. Aaron Judge has written his name alongside Roger Maris for the most homeruns in a single season. Judge’s mother and Roger Maris Jr. were present to witness the historic match with the Blue Jays Aaron Judge as he smashed his 61st homerun against the Toronto Blue Jays, in the seventh inning on Wednesday at Toronto.

“It means a lot, not just for me. I think it means a lot for a lot of people that he’s clean, he’s a Yankee, he plays the game the right way and I think he gives people a chance to look at somebody who should be revered for hitting 62 home runs and not just as a guy who did it in the American League,’’ said Roger Maris Jr.

“He should be revered and celebrated just like the single season home run champ, not just like he’s the American league home run champ,’’ Maris Jr. said. “He should be celebrated. I can’t think of anyone better that baseball can look up to as Aaron Judge, who is the face of baseball, to actually do that.”

Witnessing all nine of the past games of Aaron Judge, Roger Maris Jr. plans to accompany Aaron Judge to the Bronx to witness history about to be rewritten. “Now I’m thinking, ‘OK, we’re going to go to Yankee Stadium, and he’ll probably hit 62 on October the first, when dad hit his 61st,’’’ Maris Jr. said. “Just a lot of weird similarities.”

Roger Maris Jr. anticipates that Judge scores his 62nd homerun in New York and expects it to happen at the blink of an eye. “I think it will happen in New York and it’s where you want it to happen. It’s where I want it to happen. The city of New York deserves it, the fans deserve it. I think it will be great for baseball if it happens in New York. Like I mentioned to Aaron, ‘Get to New York and hit 62 and knock the top off Yankee Stadium.’ It’s going to be fun.”
