New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge continues to terrorize opposing pitching, and his manager Aaron Boone is grateful to have a front-row seat.

"I'm trying not to take that for granted … but I mean, it's a lot of fun to witness and to watch what he's doing on a nightly basis," Boone said Tuesday, per's Bryan Hoch. "It's pretty special."

Judge hit his league-leading 25th home run of the season in New York's 10-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old has been on an incredible run at the plate since the beginning of May, slashing .402/.522/.984 with 19 home runs, 15 doubles, 44 RBIs, and a remarkable 305 wRC+ across 37 games over that span.

"I try not to look up (at my stats), even when I'm hitting .150, I try not to look up there," Judge said.
