Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees celebrates after winning the T-Mobile Home Run Derby at Marlins Park on July 10, 2017 in Miami, Florida. But it sounds like one victory is enough for the 2017 American League home run king.

Last summer, Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge delighted baseball fans with an extraordinary Home Run Derby performance, launching 47 bombs on the way to a Derby crown. I thought he was joking around when I heard it on the podcast, but today in Tampa, Judge doubled down and told reporters he's probably not going to participate in the Home Run Derby again.
"A cool experience", Judge said Thursday. "That would be our one little day off if you're an All-Star". However, he thinks that he's one and done after winning it previous year. I was hoping to at least see Judge defend his title this season. "I know everyone always talks about [how] the Derby will do that, but it didn't have that effect on me".More news: October First Look: Varun Dhawan's wandering eyes have us and HOW!
"The derby wasn't even that big of a toll, to be honest", Judge said. It was just like taking BP. It really wasn't too taxing. I wasn't trying to swing 110 percent.
He admitted early in camp that his left shoulder that required offseason surgery began to bother him right around the All-Star break, right before he went into an extended slump. "I was taking a normal 80-90 percent swing, just trying to make contact".More news: Trump, Kim to hold historic talks in May
