I’ve never experienced anything like the atmosphere at Yankee Stadium the last three nights. The Yankees won all three games, the first on a walk-off grand slam and the third via a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning to clinch a playoff berth. Yet, all of that felt secondary to what didn’t happen—Aaron Judge did not hit his 61st home run to tie Roger Maris for the most homers by an American League player in a single season.
