MLB home run record: List of most home runs in a season, single-season HR leaders as Aaron Judge hits No. 60

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season Tuesday night in the Yankees’ 147th game of the season. This is a truly historic campaign as the umpire leads the major categories in home runs, RBI, runs, on-base percentage, miss percentage, OPS, OPS+, total bases, WAR and several other categories. He also leads the AL in batting average, meaning he is currently in line for the Triple Crown. Only Miguel Cabrera in 2012 has done this in the last 55 years.

Overall, Judge is hitting .316/.419/.703 (214 OPS+) with 60 home runs, 128 RBI, 123 runs, 16 stolen bases and 9.7 WAR. Almost everything pops up from this line, but it’s mostly 60 homers.
