Wherever he goes, media attention goes with him, and fans too as a result.
That’s what happens when you are on the brink of history.
After all, Judge is one home run shy of tying Roger Maris franchise record for most dingers over a single season with 61.
That mark is 61 years old: that appears to be the number in everybody’s mouths right now.
Judge is also vying to become the first winner of the hitting Triple Crown since Miguel Cabrera did it with the Detroit Tigers in 2012.
Taking advantage of all the attention the All-Star outfielder is getting, MLB is letting the world know, via Twitter, the networks (and the time) that will air tonight’s and tomorrow’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Don’t Miss Out On Judge’s Next Home Run
The message is clear: “Don’t miss #AaronJudge chase history,” the league’s official account tweeted.

Tonight’s game will be aired by TBS, the YES Network and Sportsnet, while tomorrow’s will be aired by YES, Sportsnet, and MLB Network.
Judge could make history with his next homer, and fans certainly won’t want to miss it.
Despite his ongoing six-game homerless streak, the powerful Judge has been making solid contact with the ball and having good at-bats.
He is also making solid contact, so it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when number 61 will come.
Judge has a unique chance of winning the Triple Crown, establishing the American League home run record, winning the MVP award and the World Series all in the same season.
It’s hard to think about someone achieving the same.
