Judge hit a 2-run homer in the seventh inning of the Yankees' game against the Toronto Blue Jays, which gave New York a 5-3 lead.
The 30-year-old tied the record set by Roger Maris in 1961, having hit his 60th home run -- which tied a previous record set by Babe Ruth in 1927 -- during New York's 9-8 walk-off win against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 20 at Yankee Stadium.
Judge also managed to hit 60 home runs in fewer games than both Yankee legends, which has long been a debate over the validity of Maris' record.
Ruth had initially set the record in 154 games, while Maris broke the record in 162 games after the league had previously extended the total amount of games in a season.
Judge hit his 60th home run in 147 games and his 61st in 155 games.
The California native currently leads all American League hitters in each of the three triple crown categories and could become the first Yankee hitter to win the triple crown since Mickey Mantle in 1956 and the first MLB player to do so since Miguel Cabrera in 2012, who was the first to accomplish the feat since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.
