The likely favorite for the American League MVP Award, Judge has hit 54 home runs this year and is inching closer to tying and passing Yankees legend Roger Maris for the most single-season home runs in American League history.
But when you compare Judge’s stats at home to his stats on the road, you’ll see that they are very similar and that no matter where Judge goes, he’s absolutely destroying the baseball.
His stats are slightly better at home, but his stats on the road aren’t that much worse for the MVP favorite.

Judge is an impending free agent and he’s putting on a show for all the teams that will be interested in him this coming offseason, including the Yankees.
He’ll be the most talked about free agent, and it’s all thanks to his epic power surge this year.
He’s been hitting home runs everywhere he’s gone and isn’t slowing down at all.
He’ll be the player to watch for the rest of this season and in the postseason as he prepares to enter the free agent market.
His offensive outburst will certainly warrant a large payday and what could potentially be a record-setting contract this offseason.
He’s put on quite the show, which will make the sweepstakes for him quite competitive.
But for now, he has a chance to make some history in regard to hitting home runs.
It’ll be exciting to see what he’s got in the tank this September as teams make their final push towards the postseason.
We’ll see if Judge can keep it going.
