Sal Durante was 19 when he caught Roger Maris’ record-breaking 61st home run in 1961. He sold the ball for $5,000, and it was returned to Maris as part of the deal. That story sounds downright quaint by today’s standards. But it’s a reminder that even six decades ago, fans who caught famous souvenirs faced a tricky choice. Should they keep the ball, sell it, or give it back to the player who hit it? Now Aaron Judge is one home run shy of tying Maris for the American League record.


Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run, matching Babe Ruth and moving within one of Roger Maris’ American League season record. The New York Yankees slugger drove a 3-1 sinker from Pittsburgh’s Wil Crowe 430 feet to the left field seats leading off the ninth inning. Judge’s third home run in two games and ninth in September thrilled a screaming crowd at Yankee Stadium. He answered pleas for a curtain call despite New York’s 8-5 deficit. He equaled Ruth’s total for the 1927 Yankees and has 15 games remaining to match and surpass Maris’ total for New York in 1961.

Fullback Reggie Gilliam and linebacker Matt Milano, with a 43-yard interception return, also scored touchdowns for Buffalo. Buffalo's defense limited Tennessee to 182 yards of offense and 12 first downs, while registering two sacks and forcing four turnovers. The Titans fell to 0-2 for the first time since 2012.

President Joe Biden’s legally suspect plan to waive up to $20,000 in student loan debt for Americans making up to $125,000 per year will cost approximately $400 billion, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. That’s an absurd amount of money to be conjured up through execu…

From the outset of Russia’s war on Ukraine, the crucial question hasn’t changed: Can Vladimir Putin be defeated at an acceptable cost? Despite all we now know about Russia’s military incompetence and the courage and skill of Ukraine’s forces, the answer is still uncertain.

There’s been a wave of violent crime the last couple of years, and the best way to address the issue is for everyone to pass over it in silence. That’s the implication of the liberal pushback against the GOP attacks on Democrats as soft-on-crime in the closing weeks of the midterms.

The U.S. House of Representatives last week passed a bill to reform how Congress certifies electors after a presidential election. That bill (or a similar but slightly weaker Senate one) needs to pass the Senate now.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark sampled the confection topped with dried crickets while participating in Tuesday’s session on sustainable food at the Citizen Sustainability Summit. The summit was put on by the Danish consulate in New York to align with this year’s high-level meeting of the U.N. General Assembly. According to a press release from the palace, the crown prince and his wife are helping launch Denmark’s candidacy for a U.N. Security Council seat. A summit spokesperson said he liked the cookie.

The high-level meeting opens Monday with a summit on education. Speeches from the scores of attending leaders will begin Tuesday and run through Monday, Sept. 26.

Another U.S. congressional delegation is visiting Taiwan as tensions with China remain high over its claims to the island. A steady stream of U.S. visitors has come to the island and met with Taiwanese officials since U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited last month. China in response has stepped up military harassment of Taiwan, sending warships, warplanes and drones toward the island daily. President Tsai Ing-wen met the U.S. delegation on Thursday and said their visit conveyed “rock solid support for Taiwan from the U.S. Congress.” Florida Democrat Stephanie Murphy said deepening economic relations with Taiwan is “one of the most important things Congress can do right now,” particularly by pushing for a trade agreement with the island.
