Selected in the 1st round of the 2013 draft, Judge burst onto the scene with a homer in his MLB debut on Aug. 13, 2016, against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium.
No. 99 earned the 2017 American League Rookie of the Year, swatting 52 (actually 53) home runs. Judge also finished second (actually first because Jose Altuve is a cheater) in Junior Circuit MVP voting. Judge also earned a silver slugger award.
A fan favorite and two-time All-Star with his own Judge’s chambers section in right field, Judge is the third-fastest player (371 games) in MLB history to hammer 100 career home runs.
