For a while it looked like Aaron Judge may fall short in his quest for 62 home runs, but he finally got there on Tuesday night.

The New York Yankees slugger set a new American League and franchise record with his 62nd home run in the 161st game of the season against the Texas Rangers — becoming just the fourth player in MLB history to reach that mark.

The leadoff blast went soaring into the left field seats and Yankees fans and baseball Twitter, including Roger Maris Jr., immediately began the celebration.

Meanwhile, others noticed how one fan seemed to jump over the railing for the ball, even though it was caught by a fan in the front row.
