Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?

He bashed his 30th home run of the season on Friday evening against the Milwaukee Brewers while setting a new Yankees rookie record and breaking his tie with Joe DiMaggio.

Judge also has half a season to make a serious run at the Yankees single-season home run record of 61. The difference is DiMaggio hit his 29 in 138 games in 1936.

Judge's 30 home runs are now the most from any player in both the American and National leagues, and his.330 batting average is third in the AL and fifth-best overall.

"It's quite an honor", Judge said.

Mark McGwire had 33 at the break in 1987 on the way to establishing the major league rookie record of 49 homers in a season.

Judge homered at his first career at bat.

Judge will start in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game on July 11, and is on pace to put forth one of the most dominant rookie campaigns in baseball history. "It's really incredible what he's done in the first half", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after his team's 9-4 loss to Milwaukee.

Judge said baseball can humble a player quickly, and to remind himself of that fact, he keeps his.179 average from past year scribbled on his pregame notes. You talk about the home runs, the walks, the average he's hit for, the defense he's played.

Thus far for this season, Judge has a.330 batting average 30 home runs and 66 RBIs.

There's a new name in the Yankees' record book after Aaron Judge eclipsed a franchise icon. After the game, he was asked when he will have a chance to sit down and reflect on his astounding first half.
