Aaron Judge is the most acclaimed player in baseball right now. His historic season put him at the top of the hearts and minds of fans across the league.

This season, Aaron Judge made history by hitting his 62nd homer of the year in early October against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field. With this dinger, the New York Yankees outfielder came face to face with history.

His 62nd home run made him the widely acclaimed MLB record holder for the most successful home runs in a single season with 62 home runs. The previous record was held by fellow Yankee Roger Maris, who homered 61 in the 1961 season.

Aaron Judge is such a legend in Linden, California that they named the nearest freeway “Highway 99” after his uniform number.

Roger Maris Jr., Judge’s wife Samantha and his parents Patti and Wayne were present when Judge entered the story. Judge has always praised his parents, especially his mother, for being his biggest supporters. Let’s see where the great man comes from.

Judge was born on April 26, 1992 in Linden, California. Linden has a population of only around 2,000 in 2022. The small town is sleepy and quaint. It is located approximately 95 miles east of San Francisco Bay.

Judge was adopted when he was just a few days old by Patti and Wayne. They are local teachers in Linden. He attended Linden High School in the city, where he was a known baseball and football prodigy.

Judge also met his future wife, Samantha Bracksieck, at Linden High School. The two later attended Fresno State University together and have been together ever since.

There is no doubt that Aaron Judge is the most famous person to come from the otherwise unknown town of Linden. He carries an immense sense of pride that is shared by those who knew him growing up.

Aaron Judge could soon be back near home

Judge, who is in the San Francisco area this week, reportedly met with the San Francisco Giants about a possible contract. With Judge’s one-year contract set to expire, he’s free to shop around. Maybe he’ll be back in Northern California before he knows it.
