Aaron Judge, the captain of the New York Yankees, was elected Thursday to start in the July 16 All-Star Game at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Be that as it may, the player has been named the top vote-getter for the 2024 MLB All-Star Game

According to MLB, the Yankees slugger topped all players with 3,425,309 votes, earning his 6th All-Star selection. Last year, despite a mid-season injury, Aaron Judge remained a finalist and candidate for top honors, ultimately being recognized as one of MLB’s best players in 2022.

Currently, Aaron Judge has already blasted 30 home runs, even amid a challenging week for the Yankees. He’s not just leading in homers; Judge is also at the top in RBIs and OPS, solidifying his status as a dominant force in the league.

Juan Soto also named All-Star finalist

Besides Aaron Judge, Dominican star Juan Soto was also named an All-Star finalist. Soto joined the Yankees during the offseason and has already hit 19 home runs this season.
