How to watch Aaron Judge’s home run chase on Apple TV

Here’s how you can watch Aaron Judge chase Roger Maris on Apple TV on Friday night.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is chasing Roger Maris’s single-season American League home run record of 61, and it’s must-see TV. That, along with Albert Pujols’s chase of 700 career home runs is adding a layer of excitement to the final rush of regular season games as final MLB postseason standings finalize.

Judge, going into Friday night’s game, sits at 60 home runs on the season, one away from tying Roger Maris. After coming within a few feet of tying the record in the bottom of the ninth inning on Thursday night, the stage is set for Friday.
