Sixty-one years later, Roger Maris finally has company.
On Wednesday night, New York Yankees star Aaron Judge finally notched home run No. 61, tying Maris for the American League single-season record.
Judge launched the historic home run in the seventh inning off Toronto Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza. With the game tied 3-3, and Judge facing a full count, he laced a two-run shot over the left field wall, putting the Yankees ahead and etching his name in the record books forever.
It took eight games, but it was certainly worth the wait.
Judge hit home run No. 60 over a week ago against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Between homer No. 60 and No. 61, Judge walked an astounding 27 times, including seven intentional passes.
