Ticket prices soar as Aaron Judge nears history at Yankee Stadium originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
All eyes are on Yankee Stadium.
While Aaron Judge didn’t go deep in Thursday’s series opener, the star slugger will continue to chase history on Friday night as the New York Yankees host the Boston Red Sox for Game 2 of a four-game set.

Why are Yankees tickets so expensive?
Two words – Aaron Judge.
There is not much more to explain. The 30-year-old Yankees outfielder is currently sitting at 60 home runs for the season. With one more homer, Judge would tie Roger Maris’ American League and Yankees single-season records. A 62nd home run would give Judge sole possession of both.
