This quiz is missing Mark McGwire's 1999 season. He hit 65 that season.

it says 1995, it should say 1999.

I saw that and knew that was wrong. '98 was the year Maris was passed for the first time, not '95. The day after McGwire hit 62 I got my driver's license and set out on the road in my '89 Buick LeSabre with a sony discman plugged into the lighter. Good times.

9 entries, and only 3 of them legit.

Apparently, Roger Maris' son feels the same way, saying that if Judge hits #62, he (Maris) would view him (Judge) as the single-season HR record-holder.

I know, officially, according to MLB, it's Bonds. But I would share Maris, Jr.'s view.

How about a band box asterisk? Ignoring all the other opaque efforts to benefit hitters over the past decade, new Yankee stadium has little league dimensions. What did outfields look like in 1927 and 1961?

Yet Judge has hit more homers on the road than at Yankee Stadium.

I'm no fan of the Yankees, but plenty of Judge's home runs are monster shots. And the cheap home runs in Yankee Stadium are in the right field seats. As a righty, Judge hits most of his to left.

Judge is a very good ballplayer. He is certainly not a one-dimensional power hitter, nor is he just getting cheap homeruns.

I'm just not willing to say that any of these are not legit. Ruth had to hit in cavernous fields, even on the road, but was the pitching the same? Bonds was an incredible ball player, before drugs, after drugs. Anyone can frame an argument to minimize any one of these achievements.

Only one is legit, Judge has faced the greatest collective of skilled pitchers in this modern era.

Maybe you should have waited until tonight -- one game left -- to update this quiz. He might go further...

Judge is benched tonight to rest before the postseason starts. Looks like 62 will be set in stone

It's strange to me that Maris is the toughest answer.
