The 2022 MLB season has been atypical in many ways.
It featured a prolonged lockout, a CBA renegotiation, a delayed start, and some broken records.
History has been made on several fronts this year, a perfect reminder of the beauty of the game: some players are simply destined for greatness.
They are battling time, their tired and aging bodies, and the fiercest competition as they seek to make their mark.
The fans know and appreciate this.
“This season Miguel Cabrera got his 3,000th hit; Albert Pujols hit his 700th home run; And Aaron Judge tied the home run record. Baseball is beautiful,” Twitter user @wegoticezo wrote.

We clarify that Judge set the New York Yankees and American League record for most home runs in a season, but not the highest mark in the MLB.
That belongs to Barry Bonds, who turned 73 in 2001.
Three Legends, Three Cool Achievements
Cabrera’s achievement came in April and was one of the high points of his career, along with his 2003 World Series home run against Roger Clemens and his 2012 Triple Crown.
This month, however, it was for Albert Pujols and Judge.
Needing 21 home runs to become the fourth batter to reach 700 in the history of the game, the 42-year-old Pujols defied the odds and completed the feat.
Judge’s turn came Wednesday, when he took Tim Mayza deep to reach 61 home runs in 2022 and tie Roger Maris’ old franchise record.
One more home run and Judge will gain sole possession of a new American League record.
It really has been an exciting season when it comes to personal achievements.
