  • Yankees star Aaron Judge signs deal with Pepsi

There was little doubt that Judge, who set a rookie record with an AL-leading 52 home runs and is an AL Most Valuable Player Award finalist, would be voted Rookie of the Year.

The award's victor, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, received all 30 first-place votes and 150 total points on the 5-3-1 scoring scale.

And it was Judge's quick ascension that greatly helped to boost a youthful club into contention, bringing the Yankees within one win of a World Series appearance. Bellinger envisioned making it to Los Angeles this season, but pretty late in the year.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge celebrates hitting a three-run homer against the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on October 16, 2017, at Yankee Stadium.

As well as his home run exploits, Judge made 128 runs and 114 RBIs.

Judge had to win a spring training competition with Aaron Hicks just to earn his starting spot.

The Dodgers have captured back-to-back NL Rookie of the Year Awards following shortstop Corey Seager's successful bid for the hardware in 2016.

His fantastic first half, culminating in his Home Run Derby victory at Marlins Park, turned him into a transcendent figure, someone baseball commissioner Rob Manfred projected as a potential face of the game.

Defensively, Judge's all-around play surprised some people, too. Pepsi still has deals with many teams, including the Yankees.

He became the fifth Yankee to hit at least 50 homers in a season and he tied for eighth-best among Yankees in a single-season, matching Mickey Mantle's 52 homers in 1956. "From his awesome catches to his monstrous home runs, whether you are a Yankee fan or not, you have to watch him".
