He hit.267 with 39 homers, 97 RBIs and.933 OPS. The 25-year-old outfielder is considered the frontrunner to earn American League Rookie of the Year honors.

Aaron Judge has won American League Rookie of the Year honors, becoming the first New York Yankees player to receive the award since Derek Jeter in 1996.

All 30 voting members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America cast first-place ballots for Judge, whose 52 home runs, 127 walks and 128 runs scored led the league.

Despite hitting.188 in the postseason (9-for-48), Judge did hit four home runs in October and his defense saved the Yankees from going out earlier than they did when he robbed Francisco Lindor of a home run in Game 3 of the ALDS. "To have this award to top it off ... is really special for me".

That home run tally was enough to break the NL's rookie home run record, so even though his counterpart in the AL overshadowed that a little bit with his own sky-high dingers, it's impressive nonetheless.


Along the way he was named to the AL All-Star team, won the home run derby and was named AL Player of the Month in June and September. A section in the right-field bleachers at Yankee Stadium has been christened the "Judge's Chambers", where fans often don judge's robes, barristers' wigs and hold signs reading "All Rise".

"I know he's a big guy, but he's an athlete out there, " said Brett Gardner.

At the plate, Judge slashed.284/.422/.627, and he also struck out 208 times.

Now, Judge will have to wait a couple more nights to find out whether or not he wins the MVP award and becomes the first Yankee to do that since Alex Rodriguez in 2007. His 52 homers and 127 walks set a new rookie record in Major League Baseball, surpassing Mark McGwire and Ted Williams, respectively.
