New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge made baseball history with his 62nd home run of the season, surpassing the American League record that Roger Maris set in 1961.

The historic blast occurred in Arlington, Texas, where the Yankees took on the Rangers in their final series of the regular season, which ends Oct. 5.
