Few people on the planet have had the year Aaron Judge enjoyed. One of them happened to store his workday belongings in the same Yankee Stadium clubhouse, just a few feet away on a plush rug.

Continues to hit the big leagues as a judge Pitching and swinging history books, Giancarlo Stanton realizes echoes of his season with the Marlins 2017, when The National League MVP will lead the majors 39 home runs. No player has hit a 59 home run since then, until the judge did in Milwaukee on Sunday.

“This is so unreal . . It was amazing to watch,” Stanton said. “We could see everything inside and all the work behind the scenes. He hit on [Tuesday]) ), as if nothing happened. He has more work to do. This is the mentality. It will always be like this.”

inside 2017 with In Miami’s season, Stanton hit a home run. 20 and59 September20 against the Warriors, let him play three more games to reach 40 – home run plateau. Under the scrutiny of the baseball world, Stanton had five hits in his final hit batter (.39) , but none of them left the yard.

“How did I deal with it didn’t get it,” Stanton said with a laugh. “Obviously, you can’t run away from it. You can’t run away from it. You can see it on the pitch. You can tell the pitchers they’re on the mound don’t want to be the one to drop it. So it’s all extra distraction, the noise outside. You have to be able to compress all of that and still stay in your zone and stick to your approach, which [Judge] does all year.”
Since the first day of spring training as a teammate 94, the judge saw Stanton as an older brother, arguing that their physiques and skills had a lot in common. Judge, who is arguably the best player in the league this season, credits Stanton for his impact in helping him get to that point.

“Have a chance to meet Big G And pick over the years, his brain has helped me grow as a player and it has helped me grow as a person,” Judge said. “He went from or 14 years old. He’s seen it all; he’s been through it all. He’s been through the MVP race, Win MVP, own 39, 30, 58, 39 home run, is pitching approx. I know him Have seen it all.”

Stanton agrees — though these days it’s the occasional judge who offers pointers to help Stanton find his moment, as this fearsome duo aims to propel the Yankees to a World Series title.

“We are very, very similar, ‘ said Stanton. “We have a lot of the same tools, a lot of the same way of baseball. So just bounce those types of ideas. When you’re looking for a mindset or approach, it’s hard to connect with everyone, ‘How did this guy come to me?’ “It’s great to have a brother bounce back, take responsibility for each other, push each other.”
