NEW YORK – New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge set the American League home run record in 2022, hitting 62 home runs in one season, breaking the previous record of 61 held by Roger Maris.
Now, he’s breaking records in the off-season.
The New York Yankees have just made a huge signing, inking superstar outfielder Aaron Judge to a record-setting contract extension. This is big news for both the team and the player, as Judge has established himself as one of the best players in baseball.
Under the new contract, Judge will earn an annual salary of $25 million, which is the largest ever. In addition, he will receive a signing bonus of $10 million. This is a massive deal for the Yankees, as they lock up one of their most important players for years to come.
It also sends a message to the rest of baseball that embattled General Manager Brian Cashman is serious about winning. For Judge, this is a life-changing deal that will set him up for financial security for years to come. He can now focus on what he does best – playing baseball and helping the Yankees win championships.
Two years ago, the Yankees signed Aaron Judge to a one-year contract worth $6.5 million. An option for 2022 paid him just over $10 million.
This is great news for Yankees fans, as Judge is one of the best players in baseball and will help bolster an already strong lineup. With Judge in the fold, the Yankees are now even more of a force to be reckoned with and should be considered to be in the running to win the World Series.
