‘Home run king’ Aaron Judge, No. 1 gun in the first at-bat of the season

Aaron Judge (31, New York Yankees), who set the “flawless home run record” (62) in the US Major League (MLB) last year and won the MVP award, showed off his presence by shooting a home run from the first at-bat of the new season.

The Yankees won 5-0 in the opening game against MLB 2023 held at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, USA on the 31st (Korean time).

Judge started as the right fielder for the second hitter that day, and reported the first gun of the season early in his first at-bat in the first inning. 메이저놀이터

Judge hit San Francisco ace Logan Webb’s 149km sinker on the second pitch in the first inning, with the score 0-0, and hit a mid-month home run with a distance of 133m. This home run was recorded as the first individual of the season and the first gun in the entire league. Judge led the team to victory with 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs in 4 at-bats, including a timely hit from 1 company, 1st and 2nd base in the 7th inning.

On the mound, starting pitcher Gerrit Cole (33) struck out 11 times in 6 innings and scored the first win of the season with no runs (3 hits, 2 walks).

With this home run, Judge proved the value of the American League home run record (62) for the first time in 61 years last year, the MVP of the regular season, and the highest ransom price in the Stove League. After last season, he became a free agent (FA) and renewed his contract with the Yankees for 9 years and 360 million dollars.

Meanwhile, the match ended in 2 hours and 33 minutes, similar to the average of the demonstration matches.

In addition, this season’s ‘No. 1 victory’ was taken by the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs finished the game two minutes before the Yankees, beating Milwaukee 4-0.
