Don’t make those off-season plans just yet! With the New York Yankees and Aaron Judge coming to town, you have a chance to witness a little history at Globe Life Field before the Texas Rangers season comes to an end.
Aaron Judge is having a historic MVP and possibly Triple Crown season for the New York Yankees by hitting a lot of home runs, in fact, 61 of them, which ties Roger Maris single season American League home run record that was set in 1961.
Aaron Judge will look to make American League history at Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers
This season for the Rangers has been a long and rebuilding one that saw the team let their long-time general manager Jon Daniels and manager Chris Woodward go during the season. However, there have been some high moments including calling up Josh Jung and witnessing the type of seasons that Corey Seager, Marcus Semien and Adolis Garcia are having.
But even as the season winds down, the Rangers have found themselves in the middle of some history. If Texas pitching allows a home run to Aaron Judge, they will find themselves in history as they will have allowed the historic 62nd long ball that will break Roger Maris’ single season American League home run record.
It will be nice to see Judge hit 62, but if you’re a pitcher then you definitely don’t want to be “the one” that sets the record just like how Mike Bacsik did when he allowed Barry Bonds to break Hank Aaron’s record of most home runs in a career and now he’s forever remember as “the one”.
Globe Life Field has seen a lot of history since it opened up in 2020 with a majority being against the Texas Rangers. Some of those include the Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series, Joe Musgrove’s San Diego Padres No-Hitter (1st in franchise history), Corey Kluber’s New York Yankees No-Hitter and could possibly be home to a player (Aaron Judge) breaking the single season American League home run record.
While we await for the Texas Rangers to make some of their own history in at home, you can’t ignore the history that could happen this week. If you have a chance to go, then you should absolutely go, because a lot of us will be asking “Where were you when Aaron Judge broke the record?” The answer could be at Globe Life Field.
This season is not over for the Texas Rangers just yet and have found themselves in a little bit of history, something that nobody has seen (a American League player do) since 1961. So book those plans to see it at Globe Life Field because who knows when it’ll ever happen again, especially at Globe Life Field.
