When Two Captains Tie

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Sunday’s game has me feeling a little bummed out. To have the lead more than once and not be able to hold onto it is tough. I guess the silver lining is that the Yankees still won the series. It could be worse so I will take what I can get.

You know who else “gets” something? Aaron Judge. Yup, after the loss I had to remind myself that there’s another twist to yesterday’s game. Our current captain has company. His 260th home run yesterday ties him with his Yankees captain predecessor Derek Jeter for ninth place on the Yankees all-time home run list.

I pointed this out to one of my non-Yankee baseball loving friends and he was surprised to hear that. “No way! Jeter hit line drives, not home runs” is actually what he said to me. I guess I can understand his shock and be a nice friend. Jeter knew how to put the ball in play, he was not known as a home run king, so that makes this even cooler for me.

My friend was quick to point out that Judge and Jeter are the last two people he would expect to be TIED for home runs in the nine spot. Judge is known for some big hits, so that isn’t shocking, but he shares it with the guy who played in a Yankees uniform for 20 years. Just goes to show you how special Jeter was. I will be sure to remind my husband of this fact as well.
So next up, to beat the tie with Jeter he will need 16 home runs to pass Jorge Posada. That will be another interesting milestone to watch. Suddenly, I am getting all of these flashbacks of my childhood and realizing now that I really am getting old…. yikes.
You are on a very impressive list, Judge. Now get a World Series championship as you work your way up the list and that makes it even sweeter.
