Judge surpassed Babe Ruth’s American League tally of 59 with a huge homer in a stunning turnaround against the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this week.

Yankee fans engaged in an epic scramble to find the potentially priceless ball in the stands.

But the support, who won the fight, traded the momento back to Judge for some signed balls and bats.

With another mighty punch, the California-born Judge will equal Roger Mari’s all-time AL record.

The Bronx were poised to witness history when the 6-foot-7 star hit the plate in the ninth inning of the Yankees’ battle with the Boston Red Sox on Thursday.

At 4-4, a homer by Judge would seal history and a playoff spot for the home team.

And the crowd went wild as he smashed a pitch from Matt Barnes high into the night sky, the ball being measured at 183 km/h by the bat.

The hit seemed destined for the stands and immortality for Judge, only to miss agonizingly short — despite TV camera angles that made it look like a dead certificate.

A wide-angle shot seemed to show the ball miles across deep midfield.

But at the very last moment, the cameraman zoomed in to show Kike Hernandez pocketing the catch on the warning lane.

Although they narrowly missed more heroics in the ninth inning, disappointment with flyball didn’t stop the Yankees from sealing the game.

Josh Donaldson hit the winning single in the tenth inning to earn a playoff berth for the 91-58 Yanks.

After the game, Judge said, “I just went under a little bit.

“It’s quite a windy night so I was hoping it might blow by the time I struck, but I just missed it.”
