New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge Saves The Day With Diving Catch (Video)

New York Yankees‘ Aaron Judge took a break from hitting home runs to show off his defense on Sunday against the Rays.

Just when you think he can’t get any better, Aaron Judge does something to make you say “wow” again. The New York Yankees outfielder didn’t hit a home run on Sunday afternoon. It was his defense that took center stage.

On the road against the Tampa Bay Rays, the rookie star made a diving catch for the ages.

In the bottom of the sixth inning with Corey Dickerson aboard after reaching with a single, Evan Longoria unloaded on a Chad Green fastball to deep right center field.

It initially looked like Judge had taken a bad route to the ball, but overcame the read with an unbelievably beautiful catch.

He followed the by a throw to first to double off Dickerson and end the Rays scoring threat.

The Yankees won 3-2 and snapped a three-game skid, improving to 25-16 on the season. Brett Gardner homered in the second inning, his eighth of the season.
