Rosenthal: Aaron Judge, as the HR hunt continues, casts an eerie silence over Yankee Stadium

attention, Yankees fans. Stop being silent before the opponents hand over the pitches Aaron Judge. You scare your scheming heroes.

“I start to get nervous when it’s that calm,” Musk Kyle Higashioka He said. “I wish they could really get louder. I feel like I’m on the edge of a cliff when no one is making any noise.”

jar Gerrit Colehowever, noted that when the count went to 2-2 over Judge in his ninth game Thursday night, the 43,123 fans at Yankee Stadium produced more of a regular scrimmage.

“It wasn’t completely calm,” Cole said. “I was kind of like, ‘Why don’t you guys just go berserk all the time?'” “If it’s a world championship, they won’t hold their breath.”

Ah, but it’s not the world championships. He is a player chasing history. A different kind of experience for this generation of Yankees fans, different even from Derek Jeter’s countdown to 3,000 hits in 2011.

Judge, in his attempt to break 61-year-old Roger Maris’ MLS record of 61 in a single season, is performing the rarest achievement of an athlete in a team sport – silencing the home crowd.

Seeing as he sits on 60 houses, Judge’s break of Maris’ record in the Yankees’ last 13 games seems inevitable. The moment is big, okay. Greater free agency than outstanding judge. Bigger than his pursuit of the Triple Crown.
