How to watch Aaron Judge in New York Yankees vs Red Sox baseball

Baseball player Aaron Judge is aiming for the all-time major league home run record today, having already hit sixty this season. And in a rather fortuitous twist, the decisive game lands on the final Apple TV+ Friday Night Baseball day of the season, an incredible finale for Apple’s first venture into live sports.

Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season in Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He needs one more today to tie Roger Maris’ all-time American League record of 61, set in 1961. If he hits two home runs, Judge will be the all-time record holder.

The big game takes place at 7pm Eastern Time today with the Red Sox at Yankees stadium. It is one of two games available today exclusively on the Apple TV platform, streaming as part of Apple’s Friday Night Baseball deal.

The Yankee’s YES network reportedly held talks with Apple to negotiate showing the potentially history-making game on other channels, but Apple declined. As such, the only way to watch the big game is through the Apple TV app.
