In a previous post, I talked about how Aaron Judge’s chase of Roger Maris’s American League home run record is a riddle connected to the crown transfer in the United Kingdom.
In the 9th inning of last night’s win over the Pirates, Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season.
The blast tied fellow Yankee Babe Ruth for second-most all-time in the American League.
Later in that same inning, Giancarlo Stanton became the hero with a game-winning home run.
Babe’s real first name was George, which is the same name as England’s last King.
George Herman Ruth, the Babe’s full name, has matching Ordinal values with Giancarlo Stanton.
It was the Yankees’ 89th victory of the year
Giancarlo Stanton was born in the year ’89
The Queen died on the 8th of September, or 8/9
Last year, the Yankees lost by a score of 8-9 in the Field of Dreams game. That movie starred Kevin Michael Costner, who gave a speech before the game.
That film was released in the year ’89 on the Queen’s 63rd birthday.
The two 8-9 walk-offs fell 404 days apart:
Earlier this year, Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks hit grand slams in the same game, becoming the first two men with the same first name to ever do so in a Major League game. To make matters more interesting, their coach is even named Aaron Boone.
For a few decades, the all-time home run leader was Hank Aaron, who broke Babe Ruth‘s record in the 70’s, becoming the new King.
The other dominant “Aaron” in sports in Aaron Rodgers, whose middle name is Charles. The new King of England as of last week is named Charles III.
So far, Rodgers has played two games for the Packers, losing the first one 23-7, and winning the second one 27-10.
Another big connection here is that the Queen died on the first day of the NFL season that culminates with Super Bowl 57. Babe Ruth, whose real name was George, was born exactly 57 years to the day before Elizabeth II became the Queen of England after her father George VI died.
