YES Television caught up with him after the game.
“It’s a special achievement… I will cherish and enjoy this moment. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet.”
The Yankees were clearly ecstatic about the accomplishment. They tweeted out, @TheJudge44is the American League home run King!

It has definitely been a baseball season to remember. You are all class and someone who should be revered. For the MAJORITY of the fans, we can now celebrate a new CLEAN HOME RUN KING!!”
