Aaron Judge may be No. 99 on the field but he certainly is No. 1 in the hearts of all New York Yankees fans at the Stadium Tuesday night.

All of baseball knows that Aaron Judge is something special. The New York Yankees are especially glad to have the 6’7″ monster on their side.

Tuesday night, Yankees fans started chanting “MVP” following Judge’s 11th home run of the season and a diving catch in right field.

Well, that escalated quickly.

But truly, he is playing like an MVP in the Bronx so far. He has been a defensive stud, making diving catches and robbing home runs from the clutches of the short porch in right.

Offensively, need we say more? Judge’s 11 home runs is tied for the lead in Major League Baseball.

Could he be the MVP? Maybe. Clearly it’s too early to tell. However, Yankees fans clearly have their mind made up.

Every day is a Judge highlight reel and we look forward to watching the continue as the season unfolds.

He may not be the MVP in all of baseball but right now, he’s the savior of the Bronx and that’s the title that truly matters.
