Aaron Judge began the year just hoping to have a locker in the Yankee Stadium clubhouse. 

He ends it with his own rooting section in right field, a strong celebrity profile, a rookie-record 52 home runs - and the American League Rookie of the Year award. 

Judge, the 6-foot-7, 25-year-old slugger whose "Judge's Chambers" became a Bronx fixture as he kept pounding home runs, on Monday was named the first unanimous AL rookie winner since the Chicago White Sox's Jose Abreu in 2014. He received all 15 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Assn. of America. Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi received 23 of 30 second-place votes, while Baltimore Orioles slugger Trey Mancini finished third.


He also becomes the first Yankee to win the award since Derek Jeter in 1996. While Judge has a long way to go to match the Cooperstown-bound shortstop's two decades of accomplishments, there were times in his rookie year that Judge proved able to handle the spotlight with Jeter's aplomb. 

Even for a guy rightfully concerned he wouldn't make the club out of spring training.

"I’m still sitting back trying to think of what all happened this year," Judge said in a conference call Monday evening. "From battling in spring training, to the highs and lows all year, to the playoffs and coming up short. It’s nothing I ever could have dreamed about. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

"The highs and lows mold you. It was an incredible year."

At times, Judge made it look easy.

Judge hit the All-Star break with 30 home runs, and commanded significant attention at the Midsummer Classic. The buzz continued after Judge won the Home Run Derby at Marlins Park, but a cold streak dogged the strikeout-prone slugger - he fanned 208 times in 2017- through much of July and August. In one 20-game stretch, he struck out 37 times while batting just .171. 

But Judge got hot again, hitting 15 homers in his final 27 games to zoom past Mark McGwire's rookie record of 49 homers set in 1987. The Yankees, meanwhile, won the wild card game against Minnesota and came within one win of their first World Series appearance since 2009.

They'll try again next year - when Judge will have a solid idea that he'll make the squad from the get-go.
