It’s time for the dog days of August.
The 2022 MLB season has reached its penultimate month and it’s time for the stretch run.
But back in July, a lot of interesting things took place.
A lot of trades were made, as well as some history by some players.
The three of them made some history this past month.
Stats By STATS revealed on Twitter that they have become the third trio in MLB history to hit at least 90 combined home runs before August.
The @Yankees' Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 91 home runs this season.
They are the 3rd teammate trio with 90+ combined HR before August in a season.
1961 Yankees: Maris/Mantle/Skowron, 98
1998 Mariners: Griffey Jr/Rodriguez/Martinez, 93

Yankee Sluggers Make History
These guys have been on an absolute tear.
In total, they hit a combined 91 home runs before the month of August.
That’s pretty impressive and it’s one of the main reasons why the Bronx Bombers are where they are right now.
This is a very good team that has a little bit of everything on its roster.
Judge, Rizzo, and Stanton have joined some elite company.
These three sluggers have been carrying the Yankees all season and are going to be fun to watch down the stretch as the Yankees look to continue running away with the American League East.
We all love some home runs, but we all love a little home run history too.
What these guys have done has been nothing short of incredible.
