Authors Kiss with Sara Troy and her guest Peter Golenbock, on air from November 1st
As fans across the country watch with great excitement as Aaron Judge prepares to surpass the iconic Roger Maris’s home run tally, NY times bestselling author and baseball historian Peter Golenbock is sharing his insights into what this monumental event means for the game.
Legendary Baseball Writer/Historian Peter Golenbock on the intertwined legacies of Roger Maris and Aaron Judge
“Aaron Judge is about to break Roger Maris’ single-season home run record, and baseball fans everywhere should stand and applaud. In an era when every pitcher throws 95 miles an hour, making a home run hitting very difficult, the even-tempered Yankee slugger has performed with uncommon skill, class, and grace. When he contends that winning games are more important than setting records, you believe him. I cheered Roger when he broke Babe’s record, and I will do the same when Judge breaks Maris’s record. Amazingly, he’s also going to win the Triple Crown. All hail the judge.”
