Aaron Judge One And Done As HR Derby Champ
One of the amazing moments for Aaron Judge in a season full of amazement was when he hit 56 total home runs to overcome the field and win the Home run Derby. That feat made Judge the first ever rookie to win the MLB Home Run Derby out right as a rookie. I hope you DVR'd it because Judge says it was his last Home Run Derby.
Judge wouldn't blame the Derby for the impending slump that saw him hit for a .185 average and 3 home runs in August and off season shoulder surgery but he did say it was over.
I hate to do this but I will...That's so Jeter!" He probably gained tons of fame and endorsements from winning the Derby but nope he's done. HE didn't blame the Derby for his bad luck but it clearly isn't as important to him as the rest of the regular season. I love the focus big man!
