Play Loud brings you baseball like you've never seen before. Once again I am totally in awe of the Weather Channel. Totally in awe of other network and local outlets who have undertaken the challenging task of covering what is a monster storm. Hurricane Ian right now power outages in Florida top 2.3 million homes and businesses. 2.3 million and even though Ian is down to a category one the storm is still moving extremely slowly. Winds are still at 75 miles per hour and it's still dumping buckets and buckets and buckets of rain. Now in the Daytona Beach area Orlando getting hit by a ton of water. I am like many of you thinking of friends and family that I know in Florida some of them on the southwest coast the Gulf Coast where Ian first made landfall earlier on Wednesday and I heard from I haven't heard from everyone but I heard from a family member who was with some friends so she just moved to the area oh my gosh two three weeks ago and moves right into the path of Hurricane Ian. Anyway she just moved there and she made some friends thankfully she's renting a house and she said that it was storm ready and it had storm windows and her new neighbors were helping her to try to secure everything and get her belongings off the patio and she even said that she had packed a bag and was staying with those friends so that she did not have to be by herself. So she sent me a message earlier and said this hurricane is unbelievable right now I'm safe I'm with my friends but I've not heard back from her again since this afternoon and just watching not only the Weather Channel but some of the Orlando and local area broadcasters I've got Fox News up now in the studio and they're doing straight weather coverage now and the amount of rain that has fallen to in some of these places getting close to 17 18 inches of rain and and not to mention the storm surge now they're saying could be in some places greater than 18 feet 18 feet of storm surge so think about it for those of you who know anything about the ocean and tides when the tide comes in which apparently for a good portion of that Southwest Gulf Coast is early so it's overnight it's early coming up on Thursday morning they believe the storm surge could be well over 15 feet in some places and there are water rescues that now law enforcement and first responders are having to to do people are stranded in the either in the homes where they live on the second floor or up on their roofs although the winds would make it really difficult to be out in the elements if you've watched any of the Weather Channel on Wednesday again I'm in awe of what these these people do it's not just the reporters and the meteorologists the one you see the ones you see on camera but think about the people who are holding the cameras the photons and the producers and the techs who are out in the elements and behind the scenes working long hours to track this storm so I appreciate their dedication there was one moment today that really kind of underscores at least that will stick with me there I'm sure many many moments but one moment specifically where I'm watching live and I see Jim Cantore who was in the he was in the Punta Gorda area and he's standing on a street corner now there's not a lot of people out for obvious reasons there was one pickup truck that drove by but there weren't a lot of people out and it's it's daytime but the rain the winds are incredible and he's standing on a street corner all of a sudden this massive gust of wind comes by and blows him over and he stumbles and he goes down on one leg and then grabs onto a signpost whips around because of the wind and is able to prevent himself from blowing out into the street it's a very athletic move grabbed onto the signpost now producer Jay tells me he got hit by a branch today what you saw this yeah that was right before in that same video so it wasn't a big branch but it was you standing in the middle of the road I got hit by a branch that long ago and it was painful you did this it's painful nonetheless but yeah he was in the middle of the road like the on the winds the same thing you're describing and all of a sudden this just piece of a tree just comes and hits him in the middle of the road and he the best part is my favorite with him at the whole time he's just like I'm fine I'm good I'll go like Jimmy all right he's like I'm good I'm good he's a rock star but it is no laughing matter because there is debris flying all over Florida in fact there have been tornadoes that have touched down I know there have been flash flood emergencies and flash flood warnings that are issued all over the state so yeah right now the power outages in some counties are at 100% or 98% so Charlotte County 98% DeSoto County 100% power outage Sarasota County 89% without power and I had mentioned last night on the show that after the hurricane went through Cuba the entire power grid to the island of Cuba was out and so I was able to make contact with a couple of my Cuban friends and family thankfully they are safe but their infrastructure is not equipped and not bolstered enough to withstand storms and wind and rains like this and there I would say they're more used to them but it's never easy it's like Puerto Rico or Haiti or the Dominican Republic they just don't have the infrastructure to prepare even the sandbags to try to prevent the water and so even now the way the winds and the rain are continuing to blast the state of Florida and so I will say the same thing I said last night thinking of the Sunshine State and there will be other people who are in the path of the storm even though it has been downgraded to a category one there are still wind reports gusts of over a hundred miles per hour in some places so it's scary it's not done and on the back half of the storm is when the storm surge takes place when the tide is high and the storm surge comes in that's when it can be extremely dangerous if homes and businesses aren't flooded at this point or maybe they have minimal flooding there there still is the potential for unbelievable water and flooding even after the storm has moved through so man watching the coverage and and seeing what people are dealing with and going through just have have been mesmerized by it all day and yes I am in awe of the Weather Channel and meteorologists and broadcasters and reporters and producers and camera operators who have been out in the elements long hours if nothing else it's long hours in order to be to be able to offer the information and to help people stay safe it's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio I'm such a weather nerd in fact people when people ask me the question about what I would do if I wasn't in sports I think from now on I'm just gonna say meteorology meteorologist I would I don't I don't just don't want to be on camera though we do have some good radio meteorology outlets for instance Accu weather now they do some TV as well but they've been providing radio weather reports as long as I've been in the business man some of the photos Marco Island is underwater Marco Island and Sanibel for those of you who know anything about Sanibel Island that's off Clearwater in that area gosh I'm there will be more photos and more videos to come in on Thursday once the Sun comes up and that's the crazy part right once the storm is gone the Sun in fact does come out and it's it's almost this strange dichotomy Florida sunshine the Sunshine State and yet damage and devastation in the wake of Florida which is now under a state of emergency we are live from the rocket mortgage studios do you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family rocket can you can find me on Twitter a law radio also on our Facebook page after hours with Amy Lawrence so I had the Weather Channel on at my house for oh I don't know seven hours before I left and I also had on yes Network so for people who live in New York City New York State in New Jersey surrounding area southern Connecticut well you know that the yes Network offers the coverage of Yankees games that is the Yankees home Network it's fact it's partially owned by the New York Yankees and it had been over a week since Aaron judge it hit home run number 60 in Toronto not the same atmosphere as in New York but up a home run pitch is a home run pitch and it was quite a battle for Aaron judge as he stepped to the plate in the seventh inning and the payoff there goes that he'd left it as high that is far that is gone number 61 he ties Roger Maris for the American League single season record with 61 home runs it's a two-run judge Ian blast here comes the judge a two-run blast and the Yankees take a 5-3 lead on number 61 for judge and the entire Yankee team is out on the field they are hugging him one by one patty judges standing behind the Yankee dugout she got a big smile on her face Ricky Ricardo Rogers Center in Toronto Teresa trace Maisa Lancer judge Bataso put up on the bottom is get the army that are extra seven seven six way let's open oh say thank you don't say way you ever say oh okay though Roger Maris hi y'all put a kiss again a center in La Mesa and West Aaron judge cool public then pop that in record in the Yankees then pop that in record that I think I'm any kind of Jay gone north turn up from Tara Aaron judge and no but oh say Santa you know those Yankees so I got on to sink up on place a judge and Papa Roger Maris oh I love Ricky Ricardo who was a guest earlier this season here on after-hours before that John Sterling and Susan Waldman the English language version of the Yankees radio network the eighth pitch of the at bat and so he had gone to a full count he fouled off a couple of pitches once again and this time he was able to tag one and it was a laser shot so Sterling standard call is it is high it is far it is deep it is whatever he obviously couldn't do all of that because I mean he jammed in a couple of those words but it got out so fast it's smacked off the wall of the bullpen into the Blue Jays bullpen right and so it turned out not to be a fan who ended up with the ball in fact this is kind of crazy I found this out on Twitter I didn't know this but someone sent me a notification to indicate the connection for those of you who know Sarah Walsh Sarah is now with the NFL Network it's a longtime TV sports broadcaster and apparently her husband is the bullpen coach of the Blue Jays and he ended up with the baseball because it banged off the wall above the Blue Jays pen so he ends up with the baseball and I'm assuming that he handed it over to I mean he's in baseball right handed it over to the Yankees and Aaron judge because first of all Sarah kind of tweeted a joke about that she'd like to announce their divorce but also because I've seen video of Aaron with the ball so who knows if he had to give anything up to the bullpen coach of the Blue Jays but if you're in baseball I feel like that's sacred there's no way that you're keeping that ball if you actually work in baseball so it says that Romano gave the ball over to Zach Britton who came over from the Yankees dugout after a couple minutes and then Britton gave the ball back in accompanied by security guards and that's a valuable baseball right there yeah he just gave it up for nothing good for him I don't know that I would have given it up for completely nothing but this is an age-old debate would you save it would you sell it for millions of dollars because you could in fact the fan who caught home run number 60 decided to keep it actually even though that's not worth nearly as much as 61 but there are people who indicated that home run ball number 60 could be worth 150,000 $200,000 I suspect the money and the price tag will go up if he ends up owning the record all by himself so right now he is tied with Roger Maris and it was really neat even though the entire Maris family did not make the trip to Toronto Roger Maris jr. was there as well as Patty judge and Patty his mom had been calm she had been smiling despite all of the walks that he had been able to to draw over the course of the trip in Toronto and let's be fair number one he was still hitting the ball when he had an opportunity he was staying very patient at the plate but he did have multiple hits over the course of this last week this seven-game drought I'm using my air quotations he did have plenty of hits his on base percentage phenomenal roughly 50% in fact it may have been a little higher than 50% over the course of this last week since he hit number 60 he's had a ton of walks he's crossed the plate a bunch because he's been on base and his teammates have picked him up and driven him in so it wasn't the entire Maris family all the kids it wasn't his whole family I don't think his wife was there because I didn't see his wife or his dad in the stands but his mom was a fixture and she was sitting right next to Roger Maris jr. so it's cool to see Aaron talk about them and them being in Toronto that was incredible you know I was great seeing her smile and then I try to give a little nod to you know Roger Maris jr. for you know coming out here supporting being at all the home games the past couple weeks and you know just having that type of support from him it means a lot that's for sure we've got a lot more from Aaron judge about home run number 61 which ties him with Roger Maris who set the record on the last day of the regular season in 1961 Aaron still has what six games to go five games to go before the season is over I'd have to look at their record their record is now 96 and 59 which means he's got seven games left right so the season is about a week remaining and we could get more home runs from both Aaron as well as Albert Pujols so Pujols actually wasn't in the lineup on Wednesday unless he was a pinch hitter but I didn't see him in the lineup initially I'm happy for Aaron it was a sweet moment it wasn't the crazy electric buzz that was really permeating the Bronx and Yankee Stadium over the course of their homestand but the Blue Jays fans did cheer there are plenty of Yankees fans there too but I thought something interesting he did not do a curtain call because there was no demand for it there in Toronto and Toronto is trying to secure a playoff spot as well so yeah it's just kind of cool to see the more subdued atmosphere though all of his teammates came out onto the warning track in front of the dugout in front of the the fence well the barrier there at the top step of the dugout and they all were able to greet him before he ever went into the dugout and the the hugs the embraces the smiles it just felt like release and relief for Aaron judge even if the pressure for him is a fairly common element to his his career because he plays in New York because of his stature his size the fact that he does have this loud bat you know going back to his rookie year he's been a larger-than-life personality and a larger-than-life piece of the Yankees team and obviously their plans moving forward because of the whole contract situation and obviously the assault on the record book so he's been dealing with the pressure he's a triple crown candidate for heaven's sakes it's not as though he can't perform under pressure but the smile on his face to finally have 61 over and done with and certainly the fact that he that he wasn't selling out just to hit the home run the team's already clinched the a le's title or the division title the team has already been able to secure its spot in the postseason and he's been very consistent about the fact that winning is the most important thing and he doesn't take the day off after they clinched the AL East there was a big debate going on in New York radio that he should take the day off because the postseason is coming and he's been in the lineup day after day and night after night so congratulations to Aaron judge to the judge family and I think it's very classy of Roger Maris jr. and the Maris family to welcome him to the club now one more means he owns the Yankees single-season record and the American League record all by his lonesome we're just getting started you can find me on Twitter a law radio also on our Facebook page after hours with Amy

after-hours podcast there goes that he left it as high as far as God number 61 he ties Roger Maris for the American League single season record with 61 home runs it's a two-run judge Ian blast here comes the judge a two-run blast and the Yankees take a 5-3 lead on number 61 for judge and the entire Yankee team is out on the field they are hugging him one by one patty judges standing behind the Yankee dugout she got a big smile on her face well somebody got over the fence I didn't know at first you know I didn't want to you know be staying at home play when it hits the wall and that's it's an incredible honor and you know there's a lot of emotions you know it took me a little longer than I wanted to but uh you know getting a chance to add two runs of the board you know how about Gary gonna get another win this is something pretty special this is after-hours with Amy Lawrence Garrett Cole on the mound picking up win number 13 as the Yankees add another win to their tally getting closer to 100 but on this Wednesday night the number that matters most is 61 and you hear Aaron judge after hitting that iconic home run in the seventh inning in Toronto in game number 155 John Sterling and Susan Waldman on Yankees radio it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio I'm actually interested in your opinion about this because I've seen some people including some in sports media debate that this is not an important number that it doesn't matter so what it's not a single season record why are we celebrating league records but the number itself is so iconic number 61 Roger Maris hitting 61 in 61 and the record has stood for so long now as much as I appreciate what Roger Maris and his family went through remember they wouldn't majorly based ball wouldn't even acknowledge 61 was the record in fact it had an asterisk connects to it for the longest time because the season was a few games shorter at the time and so baseball only I don't remember the exact year but only more recently now started to acknowledge it as an actual record and put it in the books but for the longest time 61 had an asterisk next to it and the Roger Maris family was upset about that I mean I can remember this being a controversy well hearing about it wasn't a controversy in that I ever talked about on the air obviously so I have to remember the day if I can go back and look at the the year when 1991 Thank You producer J when they finally took the asterisk away and acknowledged it as the official American League record so do you think it's a number worth celebrating he's tied the record he passed Babe Ruth with this home run to tie Roger Maris but no one has come well I would say no one's come close but the the record has stood for decades and the fact that he did it in a Yankees uniform and that Roger Maris and Babe Ruth were both Yankees it's there's something special about it but I have heard complaints why are we focusing so much on Aaron judge it's not the single season record and no it isn't although if Roger Maris jr. had his way it might be I think it means a lot in this not just for me I think it means a lot for a lot of people you know that he's clean the Yankee he plays a game the right way and you know I think it gives people a chance to look at somebody who you know should be revered for hitting 62 home runs and not just as a guy who did it in the American League he should be revered for you know being the actual single-season home run champ I mean that's really who he is if he hits 62 and and I think that's what needs to happen I think baseball needs to look at the records and I think baseball should do something so Roger Maris jr. with that strong opinion I don't agree with him it's not that I want Barry Bonds to be the single-season home run king and and I it's obviously widely accepted that he was juicing but you cannot tell the story of Major League Baseball without steroids and performance enhancing drugs and who knows how many more home runs might have been hit had it not been for the pitchers who were juicing and maybe had a couple extra miles on their fastball I mean it it's impossible to separate the power hitters from the rest of Major League Baseball who was also using performance enhancing drugs it's it just doesn't work that way and baseball allowed the PED era to flourish and didn't correct it or implicate athletes or even set up rules to outlaw PEDs for the longest time so while I do appreciate that Maris jr. would like to see his dad's number and this record honored and elevated to a different place 73 is the single-season record like it or not I mean it's same thing with Barry Bonds being the home run king like it or not until someone passes him which I don't know that it will ever happen that's just the climate that Major League Baseball created and that we now have to live with it's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio so there was talk about whether or not Aaron Judge was feeling the pressure since a week had gone by since he'd hit home run number 60 and yet he was still getting on base he was still hitting the ball he was seeing strikes though obviously there were some pitchers who were more cautious and who were careful around him yeah he was asked the question of whether or not the pressure was getting to him I'm playing a kids game I love this I love these moments and especially a moment like that where it's a three three game you got a chance to you know get to get a guy in scoring position or drop a guy in you know that's those are the moments you live for so I was just trying to soak it in and just go out there and do my job right away just yes and then to see it bounce in the bullpen you know you're like and and and just to see the spilling out and the excitement and now I can't wait to watch all the different reactions of people he's as beloved as they come and I think everyone is just so excited for him but also I think ever and I think it's partly because of how Aaron is but everyone feels a part of it and that's who he is pretty awesome setting up now for just a an amazing atmosphere I'm sure again in the Bronx starting Friday night and you know it's good script so far the fact that he's the face of your team and your best player and the fact that he is completely about others on the team it just makes me proud to have been you know been his skipper for the last five years now it was unbelievable so happy for him not a more deserving person in my opinion the way he goes about his business so what a special night for us to be able to witness it no one more equipped to rise to the challenge the anticipation you know we've been waiting for it waiting to get it over with we're gonna be waiting to get number 62 over with two and get on to bigger and better things hopefully in October for us Garrett call on Aaron judge hitting home run number 61 if you didn't see it all of and it's all over social media in fact Jay if you want to go ahead and retweet it from our show account after our CBS when you get a chance the reactions are pretty amazing similar to when Albert Pujols hit his 700th home run and they stopped the game and all of his teammates and his coaches and manager were out on to the warning track in front of the dugout to give him embraces and high fives and then he had to go through the line once he got in the dugout so went on forever but I don't know Marco if you were watching it with the audio up on TV but I could actually hear in the background the home plate umpire say take your time take your time so it's quiet there at the Rogers Center right now there were some Yankees fans but it wasn't the same atmosphere the same din as you would hear at Yankee Stadium the Yankee Stadium would have been insane until he did multiple curtain calls he didn't even do one at Rogers Center and it was quite enough that I could hear the home plate umpire saying take your time take your time you know I I had the volume up but I mean it was no I couldn't hear that I didn't hear that part of it but that's I don't want to say it was Brian O'Nora behind the plate tonight so that was a great job by him I love the box word make check that out but I did notice after the game was over he actually grabbed judge I was the first time I've ever seen home plate umpire grab a player as they were going on the field to shake hands I kind of pulled him aside and talked to him for just a second judge smiled and they walked away so who knows what was exchanged there but it's a good job by the home plate umpire to be cognizant of what's going on and not trying to all right let's all right let's go let's get the game going I mean get the moment take your time go through it that's it that's a really nice job by him I know it was really cool also is it not the most ironic thing ever that there was so much talk about who would get the ball and how the ball would be handled and whether or not the fan who got the ball would keep the ball for millions of dollars and it ends up in the Blue Jays bullpen where a guy who works in baseball is part of the baseball fraternity knows it's not about him gives it to a member of the Yankees bullpen and and that's the end it gets returned to judge after the game pitching coach grabs it I did see that the Blue Jays are very very leery of giving it to somebody that came over that said they were part of Major League Baseball because they didn't know they didn't know who was gonna be dangerous who exactly Britain went over yes reliever for the Yankees they recognized him they gave him the ball and figured you know once it's in Britain's hands they know it's gonna wind up being in judges hands so everybody in the Blue Jay bullpen cognizant that somebody can make their way on our field and try to snatch it so they didn't want to give it to anybody that they did not recognize so Zach Britain went over from the Yankee bullpen to go grab it very smart but I do think it's somewhat humorous that all the debate about what the about what the ball can be worth and how much money and whether or not you give it back and it turns out to be a guy in a bullpen who's like this is not my coach yeah keep it but I don't know I don't look and I'm not a collector I'm not into this stuff my question why was 61 so valuable I get 62 even though it's not the record I get it he's passing man why was 61 and I was thinking that too but I think it's because 61 that number has been I get it such an iconic number for so long I get it but there was actually we were looking this stuff up just because this is record stood forever right and this is something that's been such a topic but like 60 was gonna be worth a lot of money like you know six figures 61 possibly millions of dollars 62 possibly like two million dollars the Albert pool 700 home run ball was supposed to like $100,000 no I'd rather have 761 but I'm lost I just I don't and I understand 700 it's not a record either but no it's baseball immortality I'm a little confused as to the value of some of this stuff but again it's not about what's more important it's about what's valuable on the collector side yeah which is different from everything else for baseball so it's just kind of funky to me that 61 is so valuable to me 62 I get it maybe even 60 I don't see why it just it's a little confusing hmm I don't understand it either nor do I have that kind of money so it's really not in my stratosphere no I won't be at the stadium on Friday I'll be here so I'm not catching 62 either way so we're good on Twitter a law radio will get you caught up on the rest of what happened in Major League Baseball including multiple walk-offs that NL East battle but yes home run number 61

hours on CBS Sports Radio you are listening to the after-hours podcast hit deep left field what day is back it is gone a two-run home run by Eduardo Escobar the Mets on the board at sport to Miami swing on the ground the right side base hit right field devil is in around third Alonzo coming into play Anderson's throw way off line Alonzo scores the tying run with a head first slide going to third is Hannah and on a first with a two-run single is Eduardo Escobar pitch to Escobar swing on the ground ball left field base hit here comes Londora around third Ladez thrown in the plate up the third baseline Londora slides in head first safely put on the box the Mets are back in first place they'll take a one-game lead in the National League East into their three-game series in Atlanta it's the Eduardo Escobar show he is being mobbed between first and second base this is after-hours with Amy Lawrence have a night Eduardo Escobar not only the 10th inning RBI single as the Mets walk off against the Miami Marlins and have to come from behind to do it you hear Brennan Burke and then Howie Rose on Mets radio but he has all five RBI in this game for the New York Mets three for five with the five runs batted in and this is where we stand with the Washington Nationals walking off in a win over the Atlanta Braves the Mets take a one-game lead a very slim very narrow margin over the Atlanta Braves into what is a weekend series in Atlanta and because of the track of Hurricane Ian it doesn't appear as though Atlanta will be affected it looks as though the storm is gonna curve out into the Atlantic potentially pick up steam and fuel again and then come back over land in fact to you know re-enter again and do that in Georgia but north and east of Atlanta so it seems as though Atlanta if it gets rain that would be it is not going to be affected obviously all sports leagues are monitoring the storm and what's happening and we'll let you hear the latest with the NFL coming up but buckle up because it's Braves the World Series champions chasing the New York Mets as they head into a weekend series and it's a one-game lead for New York it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio it's kind of fun to think about it because all of the other divisions have been locked up now there are some wild card races wild card wrinkles if you will and we'll get to those but for now Mets Braves all focused on what's to come this weekend somebody over me it's great great game tonight especially got needing I needed a team I needed the Fang a thank you now go to Atlanta play go over there we'll turn our attention completely towards them now on the plane ride and I think everybody would have you know are excited about the opportunity we have these last six games which includes Atlanta down there Eduardo Escobar clearly excited and enthusiastic and energetic Eduardo on SNY I love it he's like oozing excitement everybody let's go makes let's go Mets and then the calming force the anchor if you will for the Mets manager Buck Showalter so as I say the Nationals walk off against the Braves but Matt Olson Brian snicker saying the same thing let's go that's the goal from the start of the year you know you get set out to win the division put yourself in the best chance to succeed in the postseason for us it's that's one in the division and still got a chance to do it and like I said a big series I'm sure it's gonna be a packed house there so we're excited it's been good crowds all year and this is a one of the biggest ones so the fans will show up it's gonna be fun I mean that's kind of why you play and and it'll be you know it'd be as hope we can play the games and and I'm gonna be a big great series I mean it's just two really good teams obviously going at it and see what happens it's not the only postseason birth that's up for grabs and both these teams will be playing in October but there is a perk there is a definitely the by that is helpful that comes with winning the NL East as for the wildcard races because the Brewers beat the Cardinals on Wednesday night the National League looks like this Padres have the second wildcard so either the Braves or the Mets will have that number one wildcard far and away Padres have a two and a half game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies who are sitting in that number three spot right now the Brewers are a half game back because of their victory over the st. Louis Cardinals they are a half game back as for the American League none of the wildcards have been clinched Toronto has dropped back-to-back games to the Yankees and so they are plus two over the Tampa Bay Rays who have a half game lead over Seattle how about that right now the Mariners are in position with they've got eight games to go eight games remaining and they could end what is the longest postseason drought of the four major team sports stretching all the way back to 2001 seals rise let's get it let's talk to Lee for a moment here before the top of the hour he's in Birmingham Alabama welcome to after-hours Lee whoa thank you for having me Amy I just wanted to talk about some 61 home runs there's a little irony that goes with it 1961 61 home runs 61 years almost to the day I know isn't it phenomenal it is and it's quite an accomplishment and I think the Marist family's handling it with a lot of class and dignity do you think it's a number and an achievement worth celebrating the way that it's been celebrated absolutely it's worth celebrating everybody's it's an American League achievement it's a Yankee achievement it's a baseball achievement and they need something big right now with the decline of fan support out there for baseball well Aaron judge is good for that because people are drawn to him he's one of those larger-than-life personalities with a game to match that you just naturally gravitate toward because of everything he brings to the table and so I keep saying this the Yankees better pay him everything that he wants and then sub after this historic season in which he may actually win the Triple Crown they've got no reason to not give him every last dime to keep him in town absolutely let's hope he is that 60 60 second home run on October the 1st so it's one years to the day that's pretty crazy you're right it happened on October 1st 1961 which was the last day of the season for Roger Maris then where that asterisk came from Lee I appreciate the perspective thank you so much for your phone call have a good morning it's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio and on Facebook so you can find us there also our show Twitter after our CBS is it an achievement worth celebrating he's tied the American League record he's tied Roger Maris it's not a single season record but he's getting a lot of attention for it coming up next we get to promote one of our favorite causes gridiron greats here on CBS Sports Radio home to all the jaw-dropping moments home to all the best plays in the league home to your favorite players from the cities you love MLB TV is the home of streaming baseball Homer away catch all the MLB action this season with live and on-demand content across all your devices enjoy MLB beginning select pregame and postgame coverage and an expanded library of highlights and content never miss a moment of the action with MLB TV stream every game from every team all season long with MLB TV blackout and other restrictions apply forget front row seats we're taking you into the action on the field and in the dugout with season two of play loud follow some of the league's biggest stars as we mic them up and get the cameras rolling during some of the hottest matchups of the season catch real-time reactions from Juan Soto and Francisco Lindor in the field and catch all the hilarious conversations between players off the field with unprecedented access watch episodes of play loud at youtube.com slash MLB play loud brings you baseball like you've never seen before home to all the jaw-dropping moments home to all the best plays in the league home to your favorite players from the cities you love MLB TV is the home of streaming baseball Homer away catch all the MLB action this season with live and on-demand content across all your devices enjoy MLB beginning select pregame and postgame coverage and an expanded library of highlights and content never miss a moment of the action with MLB TV stream every game from every team all season long with MLB TV blackout and other restrictions apply operators start earning points with lamb Weston's all-new potato perks app simply download the app and start earning points immediately and right now as a bonus get 500 points free just for registering plus a product rebate up to $100 redeem your points for goods for your business like back-of-house smallwares custom marketing materials and more register today and get your free 500 points and a rebate up to $100 visit go dot lamb Weston comm slash potato perks to download
