With all the attention focused on football, it may be easy to forget that we still have a baseball season going on.

With that, there's some big things going on in Yankeeland. Not only did the Bronx Bombers clinch a playoff spot over the weekend, but now rookie Aaron Judge has homered for the 50th time this season.

Judge breaks Mark McGwire's rookie home run record set in 1987. He now joins the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton, who hit his 50th on August 27, as the first Major League players to hit for 50 in a season since 2013 when the Oreoles' Chris Davis did it. Judge is the first Yankee to go for 50 in ten years when Alex Rodriguez hit 54.

It was kind of overwhelming right after I hit it. Kind of high-fiving everybody in the dugout. They kind of told me, ‘You’ve got to go out there. You’ve got to go out there.’ First curtain call. I hope it was a good one, I guess.

Judge went deep off the Kansas City Royals' Trevor Cahill in the seventh inning. It was actually his second homer of the game. The Yankees ended up winning 11-3 over the Royals. At 87-69 they're currently 4.5 games behind Boston in the AL East.
