No.1 home run in the ML NY jersey home run Derby Why aren’t you playing
Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who is currently ranked No. 1 in the American League MVP with his all-time home run pace, has spoken about the upcoming home run derby.
Jersey has a batting average of 0.310 25 home runs, 49 RBIs, 53 runs scored, and OPS 1.063 until the 17th (Korea Standard Time), ranking first in home runs, first in scoring, fourth in RBIs, and second in OPS. Currently, some predict that he can reach 60 home runs at his current pace.
As a result, stories about the upcoming home run derby naturally flowed out. He was asked this question in an interview with The New York Times. “I’m not going to play in the home run derby. I don’t think that’s necessary,” he said.
Jersey participated in the All-Star Game in the first year of full-time in 2017 and participated in the home run derby, and beat Miguel Sano (Minesota Twins) in the final to reach the top. Jersey hit 47 home runs in the tournament alone, showing great strength 파워볼사이트
“I’ve already competed in the tournament and won the championship. You don’t have to participate.” For jersey, who is performing well, the home run derby may be rather burdensome. In the local area, there is a saying that it is a “home run derby jinx.” Many argue that the home run derby, which has to hit the ball far away, may break the swing mechanism.
Jersey in 2017 also recorded a batting average of 0.329 30 home runs and OPS of 1.139 in the first half, but in the second half, it can be seen that its performance fell slightly to a batting average of 0.228 22 home runs and OPS of 0.939. At the time of the 2019 interview, he also said, “I slightly hurt my shoulder in the home run derby.”
However, Jersey left room, saying, “If the home run derby and the All-Star Game are held in New York, I am willing to participate.” The last time the tournament was held in New York City was held at City Field, the home stadium of the New York Mets in 2013. It will be the last time to be held at Yankee Stadium in 2008.
The All-Star Game will be held at Dodger Stadium, the home stadium of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Seattle Mariners’ T-Mobile Park will be held in 2023, and the Philadelphia Phillies’ home stadium, Citizens Bank Park, will be held in 2026. If the competition is held at Yankee Stadium, the earliest time is 2024.
However, the U.S. CBS Sports pointed out, “The home run derby may be held at Yankee Stadium in 24, but Jersey may no longer be a Yankees player.”
