According to Newsday's Laura Albanese, Judge passed Babe Ruth to set the single-season franchise home record. ESPN Stats & Info noted Ruth's mark was established in 1921, when the Yankees played at the Polo Grounds.
Fox Sports MLB relayed video of the record-setting solo blast, which traveled 484 feet, according to the New York Daily News' Mike Mazzeo.

CRUSHED! ALL RISE! No.52 for Aaron Judge giving the @Yankees the 1-0 lead. 💪💪💪 https://t.co/enK0UCMd2O2017-9-30 18:06:42
Statcast noted where Judge's dinger ranked relative to all other home runs in 2017:
We've seen @TheJudge44 reach that part of Yankee Stadium before... That 484-foot blast is the 4th-longest HR of 2017! https://t.co/rcIXB91Yxo2017-9-30 18:19:05
After slumping to the tune of a .185/.353/.326 slash line with 41 strikeouts in 116 plate appearances in August, Judge has put together a September to remember.
Then came Saturday's fourth-inning swing, which propelled Judge to 15 home runs and 32 RBI in September alone.
The Yankees will hope the 25-year-old can keep those scalding stylings alive come October, when they'll seek their first trip to the American League Championship Series since 2012.
