According to Erik Boland of Newsday, this is the third-straight season Judge tops the MLB in jersey sales.
It’s impossible to have a conversation about “the face of baseball” without mentioning Judge. He’s the biggest superstar on the most historic franchise in the game. Love him or hate him, he’s become one of the most recognizable faces for a league that doesn’t do a great job at marketing its biggest and brightest stars.
Although Judge has struggled with injuries in 2019, he’s starting to heat up at the right time. Over his last 14 games, Judge has six home runs with 14 RBIs and a slash line of .300/.435/.720. The Yankees are just a different lineup with the massive right-fielder in the two-hole.
Not to mention, the former AL Rookie of the Year has a postseason slash line of .254/.367/.627 with seven home runs and 15 RBIs.
Judge is poised to do damage in the postseason as he rides this hot streak into October. Entering the final weekend of the season, the Yankees trail the Houston Astros by two games for home-field advantage throughout the postseason. In all likelihood, New York will face the Minnesota Twins in the American League Division Series.
