Roger Maris Jr. wants MLB to decide who should be the home run king.


Aaron Judge hit his 61st home run of the year on Wednesday, tying Roger Maris for the most in American League history and ranking sixth all-time in a single MLB season. The man of the hour, though, has the title of MLB’s actual home run king, according to at least one well-known voice.

According to Brendan Kuty of, Roger Maris Jr. stated as much following Wednesday night’s game, calling Barry Bonds’ total of 73 home runs hit in 2001 fraudulent. If Judge eventually hits his 62nd home run before the season is out, he encouraged MLB to recognize him as the genuine record holder of the single-season mark.

“I believe it is significant, not only for me. I believe it has significant meaning for many individuals,” stated Maris. He plays the game ethically, is a Yankee, and is clean. It provides people a chance to look at someone who ought to be honored for hitting 62 home runs, in my opinion. He deserves respect for actually having the most home runs in a season. If he lives to be 62, that is actually who he is. I believe that’s what needs to happen, that baseball should examine the statistics, and that baseball should take action.

Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Sammy Sosa all broke Roger Maris’ record of 61 home runs during a time when PED use was widespread and MLB did not test players for performance-enhancing drugs. The younger Maris shares the opinions of numerous followers who think that the records from that time period are corrupted.

Beginning with Friday’s game, Judge has seven games remaining to surpass Maris.
