Aaron Judge is within touching distance of creating history after finally striking his 61st homer of the season. 

The New York Yankees star has been in unstoppable form this season and is on the verge of breaking the American League and team's home run record. 

His hit in the seventh inning against the Toronto Blue Jays moved him level with Bronx legend Roger Maris. Incredibly, it was his 34th plate appearance after hitting his 60th home run.

Judge surpassed another baseball legend in Babe Ruth when he produced his 60th homer of the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 20, but it's been a bit of a wait for his 61st. He had gone six games without a home run. 

Maris previously held both the AL and Yankees record, set in 1961, one ahead of Ruth's regular-season record of 60 from 1927.
