Judge received all 30 first-place votes in the voting conducted by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Aaron Judge #99 of the New York Yankees celebrates after hitting a solo home run against Brad Peacock #41 of the Houston Astros during the eighth inning in Game Six of the American League Championship Series at Minute Maid Park on October 20, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

And like with Judge and his Yankees, Bellinger figures to play a crucial for the Dodgers for years to come.

The award gives the Dodgers back-to-back Rookie of the Year Award Winners, and 18 total in franchise history, nine more than any other team in baseball.

As he established the MLB rookie record for homers in a season, surpassing Mark McGwire's 49 in 1987, seven of Judge's home runs had an exit velocity of 117 miles per hour or better, according to MLB Statcast.

It's the second year in a row a Dodger won Rookie of the Year. But they were 9-11 when they promoted Bellinger on April 25 - as an outfielder, following injuries to Andre Ethier and Joc Pederson. Bellinger beat out Pirates first baseman Josh Bell and Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong.

Injuries to Gonzalez soon opened a spot for Bellinger at his natural position, first base.

By July, the Dodger Stadium fans were serenading Bellinger with "M-V-P" chants, and teammate Enrique Hernandez wanted to know why Bellinger's name was not in the conversation for the league's most valuable player. "We're a winning team, and he's been our X factor". The 6-foot-7 slugger's victory was a foregone conclusion after he led the American League with 52 home runs and helped the Yankees reach the postseason as a wild card. He hit.267 with 39 homers, 97 RBIs and.933 OPS.

Neither race was close as each first-year player was selected unanimously.
