The baseball world has entered an era of good feelings. All the usual moaning about spoiled, tattooed punks who can’t bunt and don’t respect the game is on hold for the next few weeks. This happens periodically when a respected player is on the verge of making history.

Aaron Judge, the genial New York Yankees slugger, blasted his 60th home run of the season on Monday. In the American League, only fellow Yankees Babe Ruth and Roger Maris have hit that many round-trippers in one year. Ruth did it in 1927, when the baseball season was only 154 games. Maris did it in 1961, in the 159th game of a 162-game season.
