Aaron Judge made history this week when he hit his 62nd home run of the season against the Texas Rangers.
In doing so, the slugger shattered Roger Maris’ 61-year-old American League single-season record.
Aaron wasn’t the only member of his family to cause a stir on Tuesday night, though. His wife Samantha also left quite the impression.
While Mr. and Mrs. Judge walked through the stadium, eagle-eyed fans noticed what she was wearing:

With social media being what it nowadays, folks had some strong and immediate reactions to the visual.
The responses largely speak for themselves:

Big picture, this was obviously a huge year for the Judge family.
On an individual level, Aaron broke a record that had stood the test of time up to this point.
From a team perspective, the Yankees earned a first-round bye and are free to rest until the AL Division Series begins next Tuesday.
As for Samantha, she has really rehabbed her image in a lot of people’s eyes. After her unfortunate police stop, many had a not-so-great impression of her.
That changed this year when folks saw a different side of her.
The next month is going to be a crucial one for the Judge clan. If Aaron can build on his successful regular season and lead the Yankees to postseason glory, his name will be etched in the record books as a franchise great.

With a World Series victory, Aaron and Samantha will undoubtedly be crowned the King and Queen of New York.
Will they be able to get it done?
Time will tell.
