In their storied history, the New York Yankees have had Triple Crown winners, record-setting home run hitters, and players who have won multiple MVP awards.
As Judge attempts to break Roger Maris’ club and American League record of 61 homers set in 1961 – he tied the mark Wednesday – the 30-year-old slugger is also within reach of the Triple Crown.
In Yankees history, only Lou Gehrig (1934) and Mickey Mantle (1956) have led the American League in home runs, RBI and batting average in a single season.
Miguel Cabrera was the last MLB player to achieve the Triple Crown, in 2012 with the Detroit Tigers.

Yankees' greatest single-season performances
At the same age as Judge, Gehrig in 1934 batted .363 with 49 homers and 165 RBI in a 154-game season.
Mantle was 24 in 1956 when he batted .353 with 52 homers and 130 RBI in 150 games.
In an era when Yankee Stadium’s left-center field dimensions were far more expansive, presenting a challenge to right-handed hitters, Joe DiMaggio batted .357 with 30 homers and 125 RBI in 1941.
That’s the year DiMaggio went on an MLB-record 56-game hitting streak.
And of course, Babe Ruth had four seasons of at least 54 home runs, blasting 60 in 1927 – the MLB record until Maris topped it.
The last Yankees’ MVP season was in 2007, when Alex Rodriguez batted .314 with 54 homers and 156 RBI.
Where will Aaron Judge end up among the greatest Yankees seasons? He's already there, and now it's just a matter of time to see how great it will be.
