Sorry, Big Mac: Court is in session.
Aaron Judge hit the 50th home run of his rookie campaign Monday in a two-dinger outing that allowed the New York Yankees outfielder to officially take the record from Mark McGwire.
Many have stepped to the plate. None have hit 50 homers as a rookie.

Judge tied McGwire, who hit 49 back in 1987, with his fourth-inning blast off of Kansas City Royals starter Jake Junis. The 25-year-old followed that up in the seventh with the record-setting bomb off of Trevor Cahill. It's the seventh multi-homer game of Judge's historic 2017 season.
Winning American League Rookie of the Year is a foregone conclusion, but 13 home runs in September may help Judge to an AL MVP victory as well.
