Aaron Judge celebrates after winning the Home Run Derby at Marlins Park
In his first season, he played 132 games with a.267 batting average. He broke Mark McGwire's rookie home run record, which sealed this award as much as something can be "sealed" when it was already guaranteed before the last days of the regular season.
The Yankees outfielder and finalist for the Rookie of the Year will serve as the new spokesperson for Pepsi, the soda giant announced Monday. He didn't earn his spot on the Yankees' roster until the final days of spring training, but by July - after winning the Home Run Derby and starting in the All-Star Game - he was being discussed as the new face of baseball, thanks to his marketable mixture of prodigious power, extreme size (6-foot-7, 280 pounds) and humble personality. In Game 5 of the World Series, Bellinger hit a three-run home run that helped the team take a temporary lead.
"As he blasted his way to four AL Rookie of the Month awards and two AL Player of the Month awards, Judge kept that ".179" prominently in his phone, as a reminder of where he'd been and what he wanted to accomplish. Having grown up with Pepsi in my home, it makes this partnership even more special.
The 25-year-old Judge was the clear AL Rookie of the Year favorite thanks to his record breaking season. "From his incredible catches to his monstrous home runs, whether you are a Yankee fan or not, you have to watch him".
Now, Judge will have to wait a couple more nights to find out whether or not he wins the MVP award and becomes the first Yankee to do that since Alex Rodriguez in 2007.
No team was immune from Judge's power; he homered against every AL opponent, the first Yankee to do so since the AL expanded to 15 teams in 2013. He surpassed Frank Robinson and Wally Berger for the NL rookie home run record.
