AKIKO FUJITA: Well, and it's time now for our Chart of the Day. And today, we are locking in on New York Yankee superstar Aaron Judge in his attempt to break the American League single season home run record. You don't have to be a Yankee fan to be following this, by the way. The chase for that record leading to a big rise in average ticket prices for a Yankee game this weekend.

According to SeatGeek, ticket prices to sit in left field in hopes of maybe catching the history breaking home run ball have nearly tripled in the past few days since Judge hit his 60th home run of the season. He now needs just two more to break the record. And a lot of people checking those schedules to see if they can be at Yankee Stadium when that happens.
