How did the Yankees Keep Aaron Judge in New York

After playing a historic season this year Aaron Judge will officially be returning to the New York Yankees. Despite Judge’s perfect season, and outpouring support from fans he was hesitant to return to the team.

Baseball historians are debating where he ranks among the greatest seasons in baseball history.

George Steinbrenner and Lou Piniella had the greatest relationship of all the players that were ever Yankees during the Steinbrenner era.
