On September 23, the Yankees' Aaron Judge will continue his campaign to make baseball history, and it will be available exclusively on Apple TV+. Here's how to watch it for free across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
It's been a rough season for the Red Sox, but a brilliant one for the New York Yankees. And, the biggest star right now on the Yankees is Aaron Judge.
Apple has worked hard to make Apple TV+ the destination for Major League Baseball fans. Now it's the exclusive place to watch Judge's continued bid to break records during September 23's Red Sox vs. Yankees game.
According to MLB.com, the game is a prime-time showcase for Aaron Judge. It's going to be a big draw for Apple, too, as it streams live from Yankee Stadium in New York City.
Apple must be hoping to attract more sports fans, but Judge is aiming to equal former Yankee Roger Maris's single-season American League record of 61 homers. Judge could conceivably also achieve what would be only the second Triple Crown in the Majors for 55 years.
