The 62nd home run ball of Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who has the most home runs in the ‘clean hitter’, has been sold. However, perhaps because he was too greedy, the price of the home run ball was not that high.
Aaron Judge made a new major league history by starting as right fielder and first hitter in the 2022 Major League Texas Rangers away match held at Globe Live Field in Arlington, Texas, USA on October 5 (hereinafter Korean time).
Judge, who was recording 61 homers at the time, turned the bat with all his might when Texas starter Jesús Tinoko’s 88.4-mile (approximately 142.2 km) slider on the third pitch hit the middle of the strike zone. And the ball that left Judge’s bat led to a preemptive solo home run that went over the left wall.
Judge, who hit his 62nd home run of the season, succeeded in surpassing the record for most home runs in a single season in the Yankees and American League, held by Roger Maris. And he ranked 7th for most home runs in a major league season. It was the moment when he reached the highest number of home runs among ‘clean hitters’ who had no cases of drug use.
At this time, there was someone who caught Judge’s home run ball. Corey Youmans, vice president of Fisher Investments, which manages assets of 197 billion dollars (approximately 258 trillion won). After catching the home run ball at the time, Youmans rejected an offer to purchase the 62nd home run ball for $3 million (approximately 3.9 billion won).
Youmans said, “I will see what value this ball has and who will buy it and see what it does.” And Youmans posted his 62nd home run ball on the American auction site ‘Goldin Auctions’. But maybe it was because I was too greedy? Judge’s 62nd home run was half of Youmans’ $3 million offer. 메이저사이트
