Aaron Judge finally hit what seemed like an elusive mark, hitting home run No. 61 last night against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The ball landed in the Toronto bullpen.

Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano commented on the moment the ball entered the Blue Jays corral, saying after the game that he and his fellow relievers wanted to be careful handing it over to MLB representatives or team personnel. security at the Rogers Center.

Romano said they did this because they recognized Britton and felt the ball was safe in their hands.

In the end, Romano and the Blue Jays did the right thing by handing the ball to Britton.

That dance belongs to the New York Yankees and to Judge, so it may be a small reminder of the night Judge made important history.

So, naturally, it’s important that he stays with Judge and with the Yankees.

Romano had the right idea to hand it back to Britton as he approached them in the bullpen.

It’s a part of baseball history and should be treated as such, and the Blue Jays made the right decision to give it to someone associated with the Yankees.

It is important to protect that ball and treat it with the care and respect it deserves for its historical importance.

Now, Judge has a chance to break Maris’ home run record.
